Traffic is not expected to be impacted this week by the demolition taking place in front of the firehouse at Mason and Clayton roads, Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde wrote in an email.
Wilde released the following email update on the Clayton Road Trail Project.
"We have started the demolition of the existing sidewalk in front of the firehouse. Ameren UE has also had some crews on site to excavate for two power pole relocations just west of Mason Road. Omni Tree Service continues to work on the removal of the existing vegetation. I do not anticipate any impact on road traffic in the next week or so, but sections of the walkway will be out of service. These areas will be extensive and will be marked as necessary. Please be mindful when passing through the construction zone and if at all possible, refrain from attempting to walk through these areas."
The City of Town and Country has also created a Facebook page to update residents regularly on Clayton Road and trail construction.
The first phase includes resurfacing on Clayton Road beginning at Highway 141 and going to Oak Springs Lane. It also includes the construction of the Clayton Road Trail, a pedestrian walkway, from to Oak Springs Lane.
The contractor also has the option to do some night paving. Wilde said more specific information, including overnight work, will be released shortly so residents are aware of any disruptions that may occur.
In addition to daily Facebook updates, Wilde is sending out updates in weekly email blasts that Town and Country-Manchester Patch is posting for readers.
For more information, go to the city's website page dedicated to the project.
Residents can also email Public Works Director Craig Wilde if they would like to receive email updates or have questions. Wilde can also be contacted by phone at 314-587-2824.
Phase one is expected to be complete with the installation of landscaping in the spring.
Check back to Town and Country-Manchester Patch for updates during construction.
