Heritage Landing Street Repair
The St. Charles County Highway Department is scheduled to repair and replace concrete slabs in the Heritage Landing subdivision July 6–Nov. 25, 2020. This construction, the largest neighborhood concrete slab street repair project in the department’s history, will occur along portions of Gettysburg Landing and Hudson Landing and additional connecting side streets. These roadways are 40 years old; the concrete is deteriorating and becoming difficult and costly to repair. Rather than having portions of the construction completed over several years, the work will be conducted in five phases over five months. This approach will save time and money for taxpayers and result in smoother streets that require less maintenance.
With a project of this scope, there unfortunately will be some inconvenience. Because of the extent of the work and to complete the project in the shortest time possible, portions of Gettysburg Landing (Phases I and II) and Hudson Landing (Phases III and IV) will be converted to one-way traffic while sections are closed for repairs. As a result, there will be periods of time when residents who live along these roadways will need to park on the areas of each street that are not under construction or on a nearby side street and walk a short distance until work is complete near their homes. Highway Department staff will work as quickly as possible throughout all phases of the project and will be available in the area throughout each workweek to answer any questions and discuss concerns. Access to side streets will remain open at all times during construction. Additionally, message boards and signage will be in place to direct residents and motorists around the closed sections of roadways.

This phase will involve work on side streets in the area: Fort Sumter Way, Valley Forge, Natchez, Pioneer, Colonade, Oetting, Potomac, Monitor Way, Meramec Way, Burnside, Rotunda, Richmond, Freedom Way, and Congress Way. These streets will remain open to two-way traffic, but motorists will be required to yield to oncoming traffic in areas where new concrete slabs are being replaced. There may be short periods where residents will not have access to their driveways and need to park on the street. Cones and barricades will be used to mark areas under construction.
County ordinances prohibit damage of new construction and removal of barricades around areas closed for construction. These ordinances will be strictly enforced during this project. Resident assistance in watching the neighborhood to ensure barricades remain in place and that there is no traffic in closed areas is greatly appreciated and will help protect the quality of repairs.
