Boil Order Lifted for St. Charles and St. Peters Residents, Business Owners
ST. CHARLES, MO, (SLFP.com), September 16, 2013 - Water users in the Cities of St. Peters and St. Charles are being advised that they can resume normal use of water in those cities. Laboratory test results have just been received and indicate the water is safe for consumption in the Cities of St. Peters and St. Charles, and water storage levels in the Cities’ water systems have also been replenished.
Crews from both cities worked together for over 40 consecutive hours this weekend making repairs to a major water main break on the line that carries water to their systems from the City of St. Louis. The break was discovered late Friday afternoon.
Water can now be used normally. According to City water officials, you do not need to “flush” your water lines. In addition, it is suggested that if you have an icemaker in your refrigerator, you run one or two cycles of ice and discard them before consuming ice from your icemaker
Construction on Phase 3 of the Route 364 Page Avenue Extension Will Begin Summer 2013
WENTZVILLE, MO, (SLFP.com) - Construction on Phase 3 of the Route 364 Page Avenue Extension will start in early summer 2013, thanks to the cooperation of St. Charles County's voters, municipalities, county government and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
At its meeting February 6, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission selected the Page Constructors Joint Venture, which includes major participants Fred Weber, Inc., Millstone Bangert, Inc., Kolb Grading, and Parsons Transportation Group, as the design-build contractor team to build Phase 3. A press conference with Ed Hassinger, District Engineer for MoDOT, Mike Castro, MoDOT Route 364 Project Director, St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann, and Page Constructors to announce the plans was also held today at the St. Charles County Council Chambers.
The $118.2 million roadway project includes construction of Route 364, a four-lane divided highway, from Mid Rivers Mall Drive to Interstate 64 in St. Charles County and is expected to be completed by November 2014. The county and its municipalities teamed together to fund $57 million of the project, with MoDOT funding $61.2 million.
"The partnership of the county with our municipalities helped make this project a reality," said Steve Ehlmann, St. Charles County Executive.
St. Charles County's 1/2 cent Transportation Sales Tax, reauthorized by a 77% vote in August 2012, provided $29,150,000 for the project. O'Fallon contributed $2.25 million to help with additional right-of-way costs, and Dardenne Prairie added $600,000 for improvements at Hanley Road. The County and all of its municipalities partnered with MoDOT to secure the federal grant funds necessary to complete the project.
Phase 3 of the Route 364 Page Avenue Extension will include interchanges at:
When completed, Phase 3 will provide congestion relief for the residents of the central part of St. Charles County, make it easier to travel between St. Charles and Lake Saint Louis, and provide another route into St. Louis County. Phase 3 is also anticipated to improve the operation of Interstates 64 and 70 by reducing traffic, and is designed to handle up to 50,000 cars per day.
