As part of the ongoing improvements to Hepperman Road, the St. Charles County Highway Department will be temporarily restricting a portion of the road to one-way traffic, southbound only, beginning Friday, Aug. 17.
The one-way restricted area will be between Peruque Creek and Golf Club Drive. The highway department reports that the restriction is necessary to allow construction of new pavement and shoulders. All other areas of Hepperman Road will remain open to two-way traffic.
Northbound traffic will be required to detour around the closure area until mid-October, at which time two-way traffic will be fully restored. During the one-way restriction, southbound through traffic will be allowed, but no northbound traffic will be permitted through the restricted area. Northbound motorists can detour around the restricted area by using Hwy. N to Wilmer Road to Interstate Drive.
The Highway Department will post signs notifying motorists of the northbound detour, as well as use changeable message boards to notify residents in advance of the one-way traffic change. Residents interested in information about road projects underway in unincorporated St. Charles County can call (636) 949-7305 or visit sccmo.org/Road-Projects.
