UPDATED: 10:15 a.m., Monday-
Town and Country road crews will begin night work this week on the Clayton Road Trail and Resurfacing Project. Night work starts at 7 p.m. Monday and will wrap up each morning by 5 a.m. The work is expected to wrap up by Saturday morning.
Crews will be applying the final surface on the portion of Clayton Road between Old Woods Mill and Oak Springs. The police department will be conducting extra enforcement in the area to keep workers safe. Drivers are advised to plan their travel accordingly.
Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde said last week was a productive one. He said crews completed the milling and wedging for the resurfacing of Clayon Road. He also wants to remind residents who are concerned about the road's current appearance that the thin layer of asphalt currently placed on the road is temporary as crews prepare for the permanent pavement.
Wilde released the following information and road work schedule in email updates on the Clayton Road Trail and Resurfacing Project.
Monday night at 7:00PM we will begin placing this surface course. Starting just west of Mason Road and moving westbound, the north lane of Clayton Road will be covered with two inches of asphalt. We will then plan to make the return pass as well as pave the intersection of Clayton / Mason on Tuesday night. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be reserved for the areas east of Mason Road.
We will be enacting a temporary reduced speed zone in this area for the remainder of the paving.
Operations will begin every night at 7:00PM and finish by 5:00AM the following morning. By next Friday night / Saturday morning, our plan is to have all of the night work completed.
The schedule for the rest of the week is tentatively as follows:
- Monday night 7:00PM – Tuesday morning 5:00AM – Paving westbound Clayton between Mason and Old Woods Mill
- Tuesday night 7:00PM – Wednesday morning 5:00AM – Paving eastbound Clayton between Old Woods Mill and Mason
- Wednesday night 7:00PM – Thursday morning 5:00AM – Paving eastbound Clayton between Mason and Oak Springs
- Thursday night 7:00PM – Friday morning 5:00AM – Paving westbound Clayton between Oak Springs and Mason
- Friday night 7:00PM – Saturday morning 5:00AM – Make up day in case of rain
Crews have also finished paving the new walking trail that runs from to Oak Springs. Landscaping has also been 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.
