St. Charles County, Missouri – The St. Charles County Highway Department has reopened Pitman Hill Road to through traffic on Oct. 7. The section between Pitman Trails and Austin Manor Drive, which had been closed for the last six weeks, was the last planned closure for the project. Weather-dependent work will continue through the spring of 2015, but the entire stretch of Pitman Hill Road will now remain open to two-way traffic.
“We are pleased that we were able to re-open the road now, before inclement weather hits,” said County Engineer Craig Tajkowski. “But, even though the roadway is now open, motorists using that road need to remain alert while sidewalk, retaining wall, and final grading work continues to take place in and around the roadway. Please drive cautiously when workers are present as they finish up the remaining items of work.”
This road project, which is the last of three separate improvement projects on Pitman Hill Road stretching from Route 364 to Greens Bottom Road, is part of a continuing effort by St. Charles County Government to improve the county’s road system for the safety of the traveling public. The Pitman Hill Road projects included making wider lanes, and the addition of curbs, gutters and sidewalks. The road alignment was also improved to provide better sight distance for drivers.
