The St. Charles County Highway Department will close the North Point Prairie Road bridge between Scotti Road and Prairie Lake Court beginning Wednesday, March 15, 2017, to allow for removal and replacement of a deteriorating bridge. The new structure will include wider lanes, shoulders, a new culvert, improved drainage and an improved safety guardrail.
Traffic will be required to use a detour route around the closure for approximately two months while the box culvert is constructed. Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted. Motorists can access North Point Prairie Road using West Meyer Road to Duenke Road to Scotti Road. Signage and message boards will notify motorists of detours, closings and reopening dates. Completion of the project is expected in summer 2017.
This road project 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.
