St. Charles has invited business owners located along the outer roads of Interstate 70 near Cave Springs and Zumbehl Road to attend a meeting to discuss possible improvements to those interchanges.
The stakeholder workshop will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Jan. 25 at
The meeting is an opportunity for business owners to offer feedback on possible improvements to the area. The city contracted with Crawford, Bunte and Brammeier to study long-term and short-term solutions to congestion at Zumbehl Road and Cave Springs Boulevard interchanges in 2010.
The goal of the St. Charles County Road Board is to study the entire Interstate 70 system between Blanchette Bridge and Mid Rivers Mall Drive and create a plan for the corridor.
In August, the city council approved funding to expand the study to look at one-way frontage or outer roads in the area, which is one way to move traffic efficiently.
Both the study and community stakeholder meeting are a required part of the process the city must take to apply for federal grant funding for improvements to the interchange.
"There are no imminent changes," said Debra Aylsworth, director of public works. "This is really open discussion."
