The St. Charles County Highway Department will close Jackson Road at South Point Prairie Road starting Wednesday, May 9 to allow for reconstruction and realignment of the intersection, as well as elevation changes and drainage improvements.
When complete, officials say the intersection will have improved sight distance and safer turns.
Traffic will be required to detour around the closure for approximately three months while the intersection is reconstructed. Local traffic will be able to access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted. Motorists can access Jackson Road taking South Point Prairie Road to the I-70 South Service Road to Schaper Road to Jackson Road.
The Highway Department will post signs notifying motorists of the closure and detours, as well as use changeable message boards to notify residents of the closure and re-opening of the intersection.
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. For more information, call the Highway Department at (636) 949-7305 or visit sccmo.org/Road-Projects.
