The city of St. Peters Streets Department began pavement and storm drainage improvements on Florence Drive this week along both sides of the road’s traffic island at the entrance to Montecito Terrace.
Two-way traffic will be maintained in a single lane on one side of the island as the other side undergoes construction. Traffic entering and exiting the subdivision will have to take turns in this area and yield to oncoming traffic that has already started traveling past the island.
Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed within four weeks.
Drivers are asked to slow down through the construction area and yield to oncoming traffic as necessary.
The project will install a new drainage system and replace defective concrete slabs on both sides of the traffic island on Florence Drive.
