St. Charles County plans to realign the intersection of Route N and Route Z to a new four-way signalized intersection east of the current offset/”bowtie” intersection. Due to considerable existing traffic delays at the intersection, MoDOT was able to get federal funds through the East-West Gateway Council to reconstruct the intersection.
A project decades in the making reached another milestone on November 17, 2021, when the new David Hoekel Parkway (DHP) interchange officially opened to traffic at Interstate 70 in Wentzville. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on November 17 to commemorate its completion.
The St. Charles County Highway Department will close Schwede Road near 903 Schwede Road, weather permitting, on Monday, Dec. 6, 2021, to replace a deteriorated culvert.
Drivers may experience delays as crews will close Route F between Route D and north of Almeling Street in New Melle for pavement repairs and replacement starting Thursday, November 4 at 6 p.m., until Tuesday, November 9.
It's planting season
Work to reconfigure and improve the intersection at Hwys. N and Z has been delayed.
