Traffic Alert: Clayton Road Resurfacing Underway, Expect Delays

Resurfacing has begun on Clayton Road as part of Town and Country's new trail and road resurfacing project. This week crews work on trail landscaping and roadway paving.

UPDATED: 10:10 a.m. Tuesday-

 Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde tells Patch the road resurfacing is taking place on Clayton Road between Oak Springs and Woods Mill roads from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"That's going to be subject to change based on what we see with the traffic," Wilde said.

Drivers may experience traffic delays in those immediate areas through the end of next week as road crews work. Wilde said night paving is an option, but crews are not working at night at this time.

This week crews are coldmilling the surface of Clayton road, preparing it for the overlay.

"As long as the weather holds out for us, we're working every day," Wilde tells Patch.

Wilde sent out the following email Tuesday morning.

The milling operations yesterday went well.  We didn’t make it quite as far as anticipated, but our schedule is still intact.  We are continuing the milling east of Mason Road today and will have this section (Oak Springs to Mason Road) prepared for paving operations.  Tomorrow will be a very busy day and will bring with it some additional impact on traffic.  The milling operation will continue its work on the west end of the project (between Mason Road and Old Woods Mill Road) while the paving operation will be applying the leveling / wedge course on the east end of the project.  As I had stated in an earlier email, this leveling / wedge course is only intended to smooth the surface and prepare it for the paving fabric that will be placed prior to the final asphalt surface.  This is not and will not look like a finished product.

These will be two separately controlled work zones, so avoid these areas if you can but if you must drive through, please use caution.

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.

Check out the Clayton Road Project Facebook page.

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.
