Public Open House on Proposed I-70 Fifth Street
ST. CHARLES, MO, (SLFP.com), February 11, 2014 - The public is invited to stop by anytime during an open house, Thursday, February 13, 2014, 4:00 p.m.- 6:00 pm., to present the proposed improvements and to get citizen feedback on proposed improvements for I-70 Fifth Street Interchange.
The open house, hosted by St. Charles County, in cooperation with the City of St. Charles and the Missouri Department of Transportation, will take place at St. Charles County Administration Building, 201 North Second Street, St. Charles, MO 63301.
The I-70 Fifth Street Interchange provides access to many regional attractions, businesses, shops, restaurants, hotels and employment centers. To accommodate current and future traffic flow, improve safety and to reduce driver frustration and confusion, proposed improvements are being studied.
Nearly 50% of traffic crossing the Blanchette Bridge exits at Fifth Street or Route 94/First Capitol Drive in St. Charles County. This area is one of the busiest I-70 segments in the State of Missouri. In this heavily traveled corridor, motorists face confusing intersections, intensive lane changing, and short merging areas.
While several area roads have been upgraded in recent years, the I-70 Fifth Street Interchange has not. Studying potential improvements for this interchange is the missing link needed to improve traffic flow and safety on this busy corridor.
Water Line Insurance Program Implemented in 2014
ST. CHARLES, MO, (SLFP.com), January 2, 2014 - The City's new Water Line Insurance Program, approved by a simple majority of the voters in November 2012, will go into effect on January 1, 2014. The program is for single-family households and other residential properties of four units or less.
Property owners that discover a broken water service line will have to complete and submit a program application. Upon verification of eligibility and receiving approval, the property owners would have to obtain three bids to repair their line and submit those to the Public Works department for review and approval for program eligible reimbursement. One the work is completed, the City would reimburse the resident for 80 percent of the lowest bid.
The estimated average cost to repair a water service line is $1,500 to $2,000. Comparatively, the annual cost of the Water Line Insurance Program is just $12 per year, and would be paid as a separate fee on residential real estate taxes annually, which equates to $1 per month. Comparable insurance programs available through private vendors can cost upwards of $80 annually.
For more information about the Water Line Insurance Program, please call the Department of Public Works at 636-949-3237.
