A new "overlay" governmental district to oversee long-term Manchester Road improvements is a goal for West County cities, but not Manchester. The legal paperwork is set to be done by Town and Country Mayor Jon Dalton, who is an attorney.
With Manchester Road being targeted as part of the St. Louis Great Streets Initiative, this major thoroughfare needs a major transformation that will take years to complete.

The current proposal from water utility experts is to replace the waterline on Manchester Road from Weidman to Mason roads—about 3,300 feet of pipe. When to do it is the question.
Five water main breaks near Manchester Road and Manchester Meadows that occurred between October and Jan. 25 have the full attention of area water and transportation experts. Four of the breaks happened last month: Jan. 4, Jan. 6, Jan. 14 and Jan. 18. "It's very unusual to have this many breaks in one section of pipe," said Ann Dettmer, external affairs manager, Missouri American Water. "We've never seen anything quite like this." The 12-inch diameter pipe in that portion of the Manchester area was installed in 1940, so it is more than 70 years old, she said. In response, Dettmer said Missouri American Water and Missouri Department of Transportation teams recently worked on a plan to replace the waterline along Manchester—more than likely…
