NCI Introduces New Marketing Brochure to Explore North St. Louis County
This brochure proudly markets a comprehensive online free resource to find out about where to go and what to do in North County, and is available electronically (click here to view), or in a printed hard copy.
North County residents will get one more chance to provide their thoughts on improving the I-270 corridor between the Chain of Rocks Bridge and I-70.
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will be seeking input from North County residents, commuters and businesses to finalize the I-270 North Environmental Assessment Study by the end of this year. The study began in 2013 but was put on hold in early 2015 due to limited funding.
“Because of last year’s increase in Missouri’s major sources of transportation revenue such as motor vehicle sales tax, driver license/registration fees and gas tax, we are able to resume this study. However, these increased revenues are not sustainable long-term. They simply help us maintain our existing system, and finish planning studies such as this one,” said North County Area Engineer Lisa Kuntz.
The I-270 North Environmental Assessment identifies potential improvements for addressing safety, mobility, congestion, and aging infrastructure along the 15-mile corridor. In addition, it analyzes social, economic and environmental impacts to the community. Under federal government guidelines, such impacts have to be considered early so they can be avoided and/or minimized.
I-270 is a vital commuter and commercial corridor that connects five interstates. The study area includes 16 interchanges and the municipalities of Bridgeton, Hazelwood, Florissant, Calverton Park, Ferguson, Dellwood, Bellefontaine Neighbors and the City of St. Louis.
The I-270 North Environmental Assessment is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016. At this time, MoDOT has identified partial funding for the I-270 North Corridor in its 2017-2021 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program. This partial funding can be used for design, right-of-way, or construction.
