MoDot has produced a great little video explaining upcoming street closures and lane changes at Dorsett & I-270.  The video clip includes an animation of how the new intersection will work and explains the accelerated timeline. 

The cover of today’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch also features the upcoming changes at the exchange.  Find more information here.

The construction phase is painful, but the result will be worth it.  Traffic will move better and new landscaping will improve significantly the impression of Maryland Heights when you get off the interstate.
 
 
Join us this Saturday morning between 9:30 and 11:00 at the St. Louis Bread Company in Westport Plaza for the next in our continuing series of community meetings.  Our topic will be the ideas recently proposed by the City for future redevelopment of the Dorsett/McKelvey and Page/Bennington areas. 

If you were unable to attend the City’s open house that showcased different scenarios, this is your chance to view the plans and discuss your opinions.  What is the potential of these areas?  What businesses would you like to see attracted?  Do we need new residential options?  Should we have a town square?  We will have copies of the scenarios for you to review.

You can also view the planning scenarios online and comment (by May 10) by following this link: http://goo.gl/RbeH.  But then, the coffee and camaraderie might not be as good. ;) 

Join us the Second Saturday of every month to discuss the latest development news affecting life in Maryland Heights.
