Officials Hoping Study Won't Slow Page Project


Tommy Robertson Of the St. Charles Post, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


St. Charles County officials are hopeful that a traffic study approved last week by the East-West Gateway Coordinating Council will not delay the start of construction on the Page Avenue extension.

The board of directors for East-West Gateway approved a plan last week to spend nearly $600 million on regional transportation improvements between 1995 and 1997. Gateway is the regional planning body for St. Charles County and six other counties in Missouri and Illinois.

St. Charles County Executive Eugene Schwendemann, a member of the Gateway board, said the transportation plan included more than $37 million for land acquisition and construction of the Page extension. The extension will run from near Bennington Avenue in St. Louis County to Highway 94 in St. Charles County.

Schwendemann said he was happy that the regional planning group finally included money for construction of Page. But he said he vigorously opposed a request for a study of traffic volumes near Page and Interstate 270.

He said he hoped the study, which has a deadline of one year, would not delay construction on Page.

Tim Fischesser, executive director of the St. Louis County Municipal League, said he had asked for the study to determine whether the roads in west St. Louis County would be adequate to handle more traffic once the Page extension was built.

"I've spent six to eight months trying to get that information from somebody," said Fischesser.
