Residents wonder if crews are actually working on Southwest Ave sewer project

SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Some residents and motorists told News 4 they are not seeing any MSD workers along a section of Southwest Avenue where sewer work is supposed be getting done.

Crews recently shutdown Southwest between Lowry and McCausland to install a new sewer line to serve those in the city, Maplewood, and Richmond Heights. However, those who frequent the area say they are not seeing any workers.

“I imagine when it rains, they can't work with the tools and the equipment and all that. There's also been a lot of time and I've noticed there just aren't people working,” a resident told News 4.

I come to this gas station every day, sometimes I walk through down there because there's little sidewalk. I never see anyone out there. Never,” said driver Abigail Dotson.

MSD told News 4 crews are working.

“The crews are out here working,” said Sean Hadley with MSD. “If you don't see anybody on the street, digging, they don't think they're working. That's not what's going on. A lot of planning goes into a project like this.”

The project is expected to be complete in mid-summer.
