St. Charles County, MO – The St. Charles County Highway Department will close Pralle Lane to one-way traffic between Kunze Drive and Forest Hill Drive on Thursday, March 24 for road construction. Motorists will be able to drive south/eastbound towards Arena Parkway only during this closure.
“Due to the current design of the road in relationship to the surrounding land, one-way traffic was necessary to keep access to properties while building the improved roadway,” said Craig Tajkowski, County Engineer.
The construction project will widen and straighten Pralle Lane. Adding curb and gutter, enclosed drainage, and a sidewalk are also included as part of the project. The closure is anticipated to last between March 24 and mid-August, weather pending, after which time the road will be re-opened to two-way traffic.
Local traffic can access through the construction zone south/eastbound, but west/northbound traffic will not be permitted. North/westbound motorists must use the detour route to get around the closure. Signs notifying motorists of the closure and the necessary detours will be posted. The County will use changeable message boards to keep residents informed of the one-way traffic and any future changes.
