St. Charles County, Missouri – The St. Charles County Highway Department is scheduled to repair and replace concrete slabs in the Heritage Landing subdivision July 6–Nov. 25, 2020. This construction, the largest neighborhood concrete slab street repair project in the department’s history, will occur along portions of Gettysburg Landing, Hudson Landing, and connecting side streets.
“These roadways are 40 years old,” explains Craig Tajkowski, County Engineer. “The concrete is deteriorating and becoming difficult and costly to repair. Rather than replacing portions of the pavement over the course of several years, the work will be completed in five phases over five months. This approach will save time and money for taxpayers and result in smoother streets that require less maintenance.”
To complete the project in the shortest time possible, portions of Gettysburg Landing and Hudson Landing will be converted to one-way traffic while various sections of roads are closed for repairs. Highway Department staff will be available in the area throughout each workweek to address any questions and concerns from residents. Side streets will remain open at all times during construction. Additionally, message boards and signage will be in place to direct residents and motorists around the closed sections of roads.
“We greatly appreciate the patience and cooperation of Heritage Landing’s residents and believe they will be extremely pleased with the final results,” Tajkowski adds.
