These plans highlight the basic concept of the project and will be used to develop further, and final plans
As a part of this project, MoDOT will be significantly improving sidewalks along as much of the corridor as possible. Since that could impact vehicles entering businesses along the corridor, MoDOT set up two meetings to discuss early plans with them.
The department develops more in-depth plans and looks at where it may need to purchase temporary easements or right of way for the project.
Due to the number of anticipated easements and necessary right of way purchases, the department is required to hold a public hearing on the project. That was held in March 2018.
Once the department has Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approval on the Right of Way plans, MoDOT can start negotiating with property owners and businesses for the necessary easements or right of way.
Construction is expected to begin in late 2022
The project is expected to be complete in late summer 2023
What is the situation?
In late 2020, the Missouri Department of Transportation is planning to resurface Manchester Road (Missouri Route 100) between Lindbergh and Big Bend. As a part of that project, MoDOT is planning to make significant improvements to sidewalks along as much of the corridor as possible, including ensuring the sidewalks meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.
What are the anticipated impacts?
Most of the resurfacing work will take place overnight, with up to two lanes closed – traffic will shift to either side, but during most days, all lanes will remain open. During sidewalk construction, crews will work in either MoDOT’s right of way or private property in which the department has obtained an easement. This may require some short lane closures. In addition, crews may rebuild many of the businesses entrances; however, they will make sure customers can access the business at all times.
A portion of the project will replace the bridge over Black Creek west of the Manchester and Hanley intersection. At this point, there will be roadway construction impacts, but the exact impacts have not yet been determined. In addition, Kirkwood and Brentwood are partnering with MoDOT for some additional work along the corridor.
What does the project include?
Besides the resurfacing and sidewalk work, MoDOT will replace some signals and make updates to storm sewers and medians. In some locations, the department will replace the existing gutter with curbs and will provide more defined driveways for several businesses. There are no planned changes to existing lanes on Manchester Road.
