St. Charles County, Missouri – The St. Charles County Highway Department will close Greens Bottom Road between Pitman Hill Road and 0.6 miles west of Amrein Road beginning Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016, to allow for construction of the new Greens Bottom Road improvements. The improvements include wider lanes, shoulders and improved drainage. The vertical roadway alignment also will be improved to provide better sight distance for drivers.
Traffic will be required to use a detour route around the closure for approximately 10 weeks while the first phase of improvements is constructed. Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted. Motorists can access Greens Bottom Road using Towers Road to Caulks Hill Road to Greens Bottom Road. Signs notifying motorists of the closure and the necessary detours will be posted. The Highway Department will use changeable message boards to notify residents of any closure or opening date changes.
As work continues, additional sections of Greens Bottom Road will close. Completion of the project is expected in summer 2017.
This road project is part of a continuing effort by St. Charles County Government to improve the county’s road system for the safety of the traveling public.
