Highway N Improvements

Informational Virtual Open House

The St. Charles County Highway Department is hosting an Informational Virtual Open House on proposed resurfacing and sidewalk improvements along Highway N from Motherhead Road to Mid Rivers Mall Drive. 

This project involves resurfacing Highway N from Motherhead Road to Mid Rivers Mall Drive and replacing the pedestrian path on the south side of the roadway with a concrete sidewalk that is Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. Additional improvements include:

  • Installing new pavement markings on Highway N.
  • Modifying the location of the pedestrian push buttons along the south side of Highway N in front of Francis Howell Central High School. 
  • Reconstructing private and commercial building entrances along Highway N to comply with ADA standards.

The project is funded by the St. Charles County 1/2-cent Transportation Sales Tax, as well as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Bartlett & West is serving as the design engineering consultant. 

The estimated $1.1 million project is in the preliminary design stage. After the virtual open house, plans may be updated based on public feedback, and easement acquisition/negotiation is expected to begin in early 2021. It is anticipated that construction of the project will start in spring 2022.

Residents may request an appointment to view plans in person at the St. Charles County Highway Department, 301 N. Third Street in St. Charles.
