Route 364/Page Phase 3- October 4

The Missouri Department of Transportation and St. Charles County announced plans for the opening of the new Route 364/Page Phase 3 between Interstate 64 and Route K.  The road will be open to traffic the weekend of October 4. 
An open house event will be held on October 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a ribbon cutting ceremony being held at 2 p.m.   Access to the road will be free of charge during that time, but people are asked to bring a canned food donation for Operation Food Search.  All donations collected will be kept in the St. Charles County area. 
In addition to the public event, running enthusiasts can sign up to participate in the One Shot and Done 5K Run sponsored by St. Charles Kiwanis and Fleet Feet.  Those interested in that event will have to register online at www.phase3run.itsyourrace.com.

   The current schedule for public events is as follows:

7:30 a.m. – One Shot and Done 5K Run.  Details on cost, where to meet and registration are available online at www.phase3run.itsyourrace.com.

11 a.m. – The road opens to the public for walking, running and biking from Interstate 64 to Route K.

2 p.m. – Ribbon cutting ceremony begins.

3 p.m. – The road closes to the public to get ready for opening road to traffic in the evening. 

Parking for the public event is available at several locations along the new corridor:

Dardenne Town Square at Route N and Henke Road

Dardenne Prairie Presbyterian Church at Winghaven Boulevard and Route

Schnucks Supermarket at 3029 Highway K 

Some tips for the day:

  • The general public will not be allowed on the road to walk, run or bike until 11 a.m. because of the morning’s race.
  • Please do not bring pets, large coolers, alcohol or glass bottles.
  • Please do not bring motorized vehicles for the safety of attendees.
  • For bike riders, the road may be very crowded, so please give fellow attendees plenty of space.

Page Extension/Route K Updates

 

Beginning Monday June 16th,  a section of Route K will be closed overnight Monday through Thursday for the next two weeks.  Route K will be closed between Route N and South Outer 364 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday, June 16 to Thursday, June 19 and from Monday, June 23 to Thursday, June 26.  The closure is necessary so crews can place girders at Route K for the two new Route 364 bridges.  Motorists can detour around the closure from the south by taking South Outer 364 to Bryan Road to Route N.  The northbound detour is Route N to Bryan Road to South Outer 364.  For more information on the project or to see a detour map, visit www.modot.org/route364.

Tree of Lights Committee

The City of Dardenne Prairie, in partnership with the St. Charles County Salvation Army, has formed a committee to help plan and implement the Annual Tree of Lights Celebration. 
The Celebration will be held on November 22, 2014.  This has proven to be a popular event for Dardenne Prairie and the whole St. Charles County area. We plan to make it bigger and better in 2014 and we need your help.  Our first meeting was a huge success.  Some awesome people joined and they had some great ideas.  This committee is definitely going to be fun and what could be more rewarding than helping the Salvation Army provide for the needy families of St. Charles County.
If you are interested in joining,  please e-mail Patti at patti@dardenneprairie.org.
