(KMOV.com) – MoDOT officials report the second phase of the new Page Avenue Extension will open two months ahead of schedule on August 30th.
The announcement was made on Thursday by MoDOT, St. Charles County and St. Peters officials.
“We are thrilled to be opening the second phase of the Route 364 Page Avenue Extension two months ahead of schedule,” said Ed Hassinger, MoDOT St. Louis District Engineer. “This project is a great example of cooperation with the local partners to work together with funding options to build a great project for the public. With the decreasing amounts of transportation funds, this collaboration with our local partners is critically important. Now the citizens of St. Charles County can enjoy six more miles of improved roadway.”
Officials are planning to have a ribbon cutting at 9:30 on August 30th. By early afternoon, the highway will be open to traffic.
The final phase of the Route 364 Page Extension will extend from Mid Rivers Mall Drive running parallel to Route N to the Route N and I-64 interchange. This $100 million project includes federal and state transportation funds, St. Charles County road tax funds and local and federal transportation funds for many of the county municipalities.
The Phase 3 Route 364 project will be awarded to a contractor in Spring 2013 and will be complete by the end of 2014. For more information on the Route 364 Page Extension project, visit www.modot.org/route364 .
