MoDOT will not close slip ramp on westbound Route 94

     ST. LOUIS - After reviewing and discussing concerns from the public during an August 7 public meeting, the Missouri Department of Transportation has decided not to close the slip ramp on westbound Route 94 just south of Zumbehl Road in St. Charles County.

"Many of the people who attended were concerned about avoiding traffic on Route 94 and Pralle Lane, which would have been the route for people affected by the proposed slip ramp closure," said Jim Gremaud, MoDOT area engineer for St. Charles County. "We also had a lot of attendees concerned about people turning right from Zumbehl into the path of people turning left from Friedens Road."

The department had proposed to close the slip ramp due to some intersection improvements the city of St. Charles is planning to make to Zumbehl Road.  The city's plan will add another through/turn lane on Zumbehl Road at Route 94.  This improvement will push traffic turning right from Zumbehl to westbound Route 94 about 20 feet closer to the slip ramp. 

"We are still looking at some other modifications to improve safety on the intersection of Route 94 and Zumbehl," said Gremaud. "We will continue to monitor the area after the city's intersection improvements are finished to make sure it remains safe for drivers."

MoDOT is planning to repave sections of Old Route 94 - the north outer road - on either side of the slip ramp starting in spring 2009.
