MoDOT to Hold Public Hearing to Discuss Manchester Road Construction
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, March 18, 2018 - Commuters who regularly use Manchester Road between Lindbergh and Big Bend in St. Louis County may want to attend an open house-style informational public hearing about construction that could start as early as 2020.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an open house-style public hearing to share information about the project, which will resurface about five miles of Manchester Road. MoDOT is also planning to make significant improvements to sidewalks along the corridor, which may require the department to purchase right of way or easements. This hearing will also allow property owners to discuss their rights, and options, through the process.

During the hearing, MoDOT engineers will share information about current plans and updates for the projects. Those interested may attend at any time during the open house public hearing, as there will be no formal presentations.

The open house-style public meeting is noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, in the Brentwood School District conference center, 1201 Hanley Industrial Court, St. Louis, MO 63144.

The school district asks that all attendees park in the south parking lot, to allow parents to pick up and drop off their children at the Early Childhood Center. In addition, they ask that people avoid parking in the lots of neighboring businesses. Since parking is limited, they encourage attendees to carpool.

This hearing will allow the public to get information about the project and to provide comments, either directly to the engineers or in written comments, on potential impacts due to the construction of this project.

Volunteers Needed for Confluence Trash Bash
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, March 11, 2018 - Great Rivers Greenway, the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, and Missouri American Water are holding the 10th annual Confluence Trash Bash, Saturday, March 24, 2018, from 8 a.m. to noon. Area residents are invited to join cleanup efforts, helping to improve the condition of our waterways. To date, volunteers have removed more than 140 tons of trash and about 6,400 tires from area streams and rivers.

Volunteers can choose from the following locations for check-in and a free bagel breakfast from 8-8:45 a.m.:

  • Columbia Bottom Conservation Area, 801 Strodtman Rd, St. Louis, MO 63138
  • Creve Coeur Park, 2160 Creve Coeur Mill Road, St. Louis, MO 63146
  • Chesterfield River's Edge Park, 17089 North Outer 40 Rd #140, Chesterfield, MO 63005 (Ages 16 and older only)
  • Florissant Sunset Park, 2300 Sunset Park Drive, Florissant, MO 63031
  • Bridgeton Government Center, 12355 Natural Bridge Road, Bridgeton, MO 63044
  • Hanley Hills City Hall, 7713 Utica Dr., St. Louis, MO 63133
  • Overland Wild Acres Park, 2500 Ashby Road, Overland, MO 63114
Specific cleanup sites will then be assigned near each of the starting locations. Volunteers can also choose to be a single-stream waste sorter at the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge (10950 Riverview Drive, 63137) to help organizers recycle as much of the trash and debris removed from the waterways as possible and divert it from the landfill.

"The Confluence Trash Bash is the perfect cleanup for seasoned volunteers and newcomers alike," says Tom Schweiss, Great Rivers Greenway Conservation Program Manager. "This one-day event brings together people of all ages who are willing to work hard, have fun, and get a little bit muddy to improve water quality and wildlife habit. At the end of the day, it's always rewarding to see how much trash we have removed from the waterways surrounding the Confluence in just three hours."

All are welcome, and no experience is required. Individual volunteers, civic groups and youth organizations are encouraged to attend. Volunteers should dress for the weather and bring a water

bottle and gloves. Trash bags will be provided. Transportation is available for school and other groups by contacting Colleen Scott with the Missouri Department of Conservation via email at
