Work on Augusta Bottom Road between Emke Road and Schell Road will continue through Aug. 28, according to staff from the St. Charles County Highway Department. The work is being completed to remove and replace a deteriorating bridge.
Traffic is required to use a detour route around the closure while the bridge is replaced. Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic is permitted. Signs notifying motorists of the closure and the necessary detours are posted.
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.
