St. Charles County, Missouri – Beginning Monday, March 27, 2017, the St. Charles County Highway Department will close the Schnarre Road bridge 1.2 miles west of Morrison Lane and 0.9 miles east of State Highway T to allow for removal and replacement of the deteriorating bridge. The new bridge will include wider lanes, shoulders, improved drainage and an improved safety guardrail.
Traffic will be required to use a detour route around the closure for approximately two months while the bridge is constructed. Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted. Motorists can access Schnarre Road using Morrison Lane to State Highway N to State Highway T. Signage and message boards will notify motorists of detours, closings and reopening dates. 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.
