Town and Country road crews will begin working at the intersection of Mason and Clayton roads at 6 a.m. Thursday and will then head westbound toward Old Woods Mill Road. Drivers are urged to avoid these areas if possible to help alleviate traffic issues.
Overnight work begins on the Clayton Road Project Monday.
Wedging east of Mason Road and the milling west of Mason Road are now complete and should not see rush hour traffic delays in that area, according to Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde.
Road resurfacing is taking place on Clayton Road between Oak Springs and Woods Mill roads this week and next week. Drivers may experience traffic delays in those areas through the end of next week.
"As long as the weather holds out for us, we're working every day," Wilde previously told Patch.
Wilde released the following email update on the Clayton Road Trail and Resurfacing Project.
Tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 6:00AM we will begin with the wedging of the intersection at Mason and Clayton and will then work our way westbound toward Old Woods Mill with the wedge course. We will be heading against the typical eastbound morning rush hour traffic to minimize the impact. If all goes as planned, we will make the return pass eastbound during the middle of the day and be off of the roadway prior to the evening rush hour. If you can avoid this section of Clayton Road, please do so.
Beginning Monday, we plan to start placement of the paving fabric and riding surface. This work is scheduled for the overnight hours. It is anticipated that we will be working from 7:00PM to 5:00AM Monday through Friday night. I will provide additional information about more specific work locations as we get closer.
Crews just finished paving the new walking trail last week that runs from to Oak Springs. This week landscaping is being installed in and around the trail.
Residents can also check out the city's landscape plans on its website.
It's all part of phase one of the Clayton Road Trail and Resurfacing Project. Phase one began in October and is expected to wrap up the end of May. Phase two is set to begin August or September.
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.
In addition to daily Facebook updates, Wilde is sending out updates 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.
The first phase is expected to be complete with the installation of landscaping in the spring.
