This project will upgrade the intersection at Central School and St. Peters-Howell roads, improve traffic flow and reduce congestion during peak traffic periods, and improve safety and pedestrian access. Proposed improvements include:
Widening St. Peters-Howell Road to provide dual southbound left turn lanes.
Widening Central School Road to provide a second westbound through lane.
Widening Central School Road between St. Peters-Howell Road and the Route 364 westbound ramps to provide a second eastbound through lane.
Modifying the traffic signal and including ADA-compliant pedestrian facilities.
Modifying the existing drainage system.
The project is funded by the St. Charles County 1/2-cent Transportation Sales Tax, as well as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). HR Green, Inc., is serving as the design engineering consultant.
The estimated $1.4 million project is in the preliminary design stage. After the virtual open house, plans may be updated based on public feedback, and easement acquisition/negotiation is expected to begin in early 2021. It is anticipated that construction of the project will start in mid-to-late 2021.
