Construction Work Begins on Patterson Road Improvements

The roadwork will add a right-turn lane, storm sewers and a sidewalk.

An arterial road in Florissant is undergoing a bit of a transformation thanks to St. Louis County.

This past week, St. Louis County Department of Highways and Traffic began construction work on Patterson Road, from Sally Lane to the entrance of the McDonald’s north on North Lindbergh, to add a right-turn lane to the west side of the roadway.

(To get information on all Florissant projects and roadways, subscribe to our daily newsletter.)

Funded by federal and St. Louis County funds, the project will ease congestion as well as add storm sewers, concrete sidewalk and ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps, according to a City of Florissant press release.

The work on the road will take place usually during the week from 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and lane restrictions will be applied.

The project is scheduled to be complete at the end of June.

They just added a right turn lane to it I say 5 years ago and it didn't help any so how do they expect it to help this time.

This isn't going to help when the traffic starts backing up at Mullanphy.They also need to change the stop light at Lindsay. When the people on Pattersons light is green the light at Lindsay needs to be green. too so we can keep flowing.

Why don't they just teach the first car in the lane how to merge and not just sit there until the light changes green

The traffic backs up to Mullanphy because people can't comprehend "merging" onto Lindbergh. They wait until they can swing into the middle or left lane. I know this concept is baffling...BUT..I swear it's easier to get into traffic if you're already moving. Just a tip.....

The extension of the right turn lane could be extended to the intersection at Mullanphy and traffic flow onto Lindbergh and Patterson would still be the same. MODOT's original plans on Southbound Lindbergh was to add an acceleration lane from Patterson Road to The Sears Hardware store. The additional lane stops at the Honey Baked store. Although the original project was MODOT's and this project is St. Louis County's project, The residents of Florissant are the ones affected by this bottled neck. Yet the City of Florissant never really had any input on either with the exception of (then) Councilman Keith English. The City is asking for $40,000 to pay for outside subcontractors to referee softball games at tonight's council meeting. But never even considered an independent study on the Patterson/Lindsay/Lindbergh project that directly affects the residents of Florissant.
