NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

A street closure near the intersection of 17th and Cass is tied to electrical and traffic problems

A hole in the street is blocking traffic, something that is concerning to resident Sharon Jones. Jones said the Parkway School District said the bus could not drop off her daughter because it can’t get around the work.

“I didn’t know what stop my daughter was going to get off at. I did not know until it was time for her to come home from school,” said Jones.

Multiple utilities are working to fix a growing hole discovered under Cass. Ameren crews told News 4 the street is closed to ensure safety.

The problem under the street is also tied to power outages.

Jones said nobody is sharing that information with nearby residents.

Ameren said it has notified the city and management of the property where Jones lives.
