– Missouri Department of Transportation District Engineer Ed Hassinger, St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann, and many federal, state and local elected officials broke ground today for the final section of the Route 364 Page Avenue Extension. The ceremony took place this morning at Highway 40/64 and Route N interchange in Lake Saint Louis. The site marks the location where the final nine miles of Route 364 will end at I-64.
The new $118 million four-lane divided highway will cross through five municipalities in St. Charles County and will include new interchanges at Route 94, Route K, Bryan Road, Henke Road and additional ramps at I-64. The project received $57 million in funding from St. Charles County and the local municipalities including specific funds from the cities of O’Fallon and Dardenne Prairie.
The design-build project was awarded to Page Constructors, a joint venture with Fred Weber Inc, Millstone Bangert Inc, and Kolb Grading, with Parsons Transportation serving as the lead designer. Construction work began this month. The new highway will open in three sections in the fall of 2014 with final completion by Thanksgiving 2014.
The first two areas for construction work will be at Gutermuth Road in Cottleville and at Bryan Road in O’Fallon/Dardenne Prairie. A short section of Gutermuth Road will close Wednesday, May 29 and remain closed until August 29. Motorists will be able to use Old Gutermuth as a detour around the construction site. Crews will be working at Bryan Road but construction impacts will be minimal. Within the next month or so, residents should see construction activity along all nine miles of the project.
Maps of the new highway design and the interchanges at Route 94, Route K, Bryan Road, Henke Road and I-64 are available online. For more information on the Route 364 project, go to www.modot.org/Route364 .
