Ehlmann road between Truman and Zumbhel (much less than a mile) is entering its SECOND winter under re-construction. WHY. It seems that they are now busting up work that was previously done on this project and making temporary fixes to get through the winter. My first thought was that the contractor on this project bid it on an hourly basis. I am sure this job has low priority but please we're going on two years. By the time it's complete it will be time to redo it again.

The red light located on Jeffco in front of Rockport school in Arnold, flashes yellow most of the day everyday. At certain times of the school day, it just turns red! That is when people slam on their brakes or cruise right through it. Wouldn't it make more sense and be safer for it to flash green all day, then turn yellow for the appropriate amount of time before changing to red?

The traffic signal located on Jeffco and Tenbrook Rd. across from Fox Campus in Arnold has had many accidents west bound from Tenbrook or eastbound from campus resulting from left hand turns. There are left turn arrows for north and south bound lanes on Jeffco. It seems it would be much safer to install left turn signals for the lights directing traffic east and westbound. This problem has remained unaddressed for many years, what can be done to alleviate it?

I just wonder, why, if this thread was already posted that another thread with the same theme was posted and no one bothered to answer the questions that had already been asked in here? I reposted my questions in the other similar thread, but no doubt it is probably too late to get any answers. So much for ask the pro.

Hi all! I apologize for the confusion with the first article. The Monday article is to introduce the theme and seek experts or let readers know who wil be answering their questions on Thursday. The experts answer the questions in Ask the Patch Pro on Thursday. I'm sorry if you were unable to get your questions answered. Since this seemed to be a popular theme, we will definitely be working with MoDOT again to get more reader questions answered! If you have any other themes you'd like to see or experts you'd like to hear from, please feel free to email me your ideas at jordan.lanham@patch.com.
