The contractor for the Manchester Streetscape project will be closing a section of Woods Avenue between Manchester Road and Rodgers Drive in Wildwood beginning Monday, Dec. 2. The closure will allow the contractor to raise the profile of Woods Avenue to match future streetscape improvements underway at that location. The anticipated reopening of the area is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 2, 2020, weather permitting. A signed detour route will be in place along Route 109 for the duration of the work. Electronic message boards alongside the route will notify motorists of the detour.
The Manchester Road Streetscape Plan is currently in its third phase and spans from Taylor Road to Eatherton Road in Ward 8. According to the city’s official website, as of November 2019, Missouri-American has almost completed its relocation work, so Gershenson Construction will be able to begin installing storm sewers along the roadway.
