STL County Hosting Meeting for "South County Connector" Open House on December 9

St. Louis County will hold a December 9, 2010 open house to share information about its “South County Connector.” The meeting begins at 3 p.m. and will conclude at 7 p.m. in the Affton White-Rodgers Community Center (9801 MacKenzie Road).

Electronic message boards were recently activated on Big Bend, Laclede Station, River Des Peres, Murdoch and Lansdowne to help notify the public of next week’s event.

In very general terms, the “South County Connector” is a proposed major new roadway linking South County to central St. Louis County, as well as to interstates 55, 44, 64/40 and I-170. A specific route has NOT been selected. However, the road would be built within an area bounded by Manchester Road to the north; Hanley and Laclede Station to the west; Murdoch and Watson to the south and River Des Peres and Big Bend to the east.

The open house will discuss potential corridors through which the road could be built, time lines, cost and other pertinent information about the project. Residents are welcome to attend and ask questions at any time between 3 and 7 p.m. Displays, maps and other detailed information will be available for review and feedback. Public input will play an important role in the route St. Louis County ultimately selects.

For special accommodations, please contact David Wrone at 314-615-8173. If you have questions about the South County Connector, please call John Hicks at 615-8532.

The Federal Highway Administration and Missouri’s Department of Transportation will also be participating in the open house.
