ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) – MoDOT announced Thursday the second portion of the Page Avenue Extension will open two months early.
The final portion will be determined by a tax vote.
The second stage will open from Harvester Road to Mid Rivers Mall Drive. Part two of the page avenue extension, Highway 364, will officially open august 30th. The new extension will connect with Interstate 64 near the current Highway 94 exit. The roadway is expected to increase business in St. Charles County.
A large part of the funding came from a half-cent transportation tax, which is up for re-approval in st. Charles County on August 7. County officials say without the tax, projects like this won’t help move the county forward.
Officials do believe support for the tax is strong. MoDOT will be award a contract for the final stage of construction in the spring. The Page Extension is scheduled to be completed by December 2014.
