July 2013

The review and comment period, which began on May 3, 2013, is now closed.

Next Steps
The County and its Study Team will review all comments submitted on the Draft EIS and address them in the Final EIS.

The Final EIS is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013 and will be submitted to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for review and approval.


Motorists who travel between south St. Louis County, the City of St. Louis, and central St. Louis County often experience traffic congestion and delays on streets such as River Des Peres Boulevard, Hanley Road, Laclede Station Road, and Big Bend Boulevard. To address this congestion, as well as improve roadway connectivity, safety and roadway capacity, the St. Louis County Department of Highways and Traffic (County) is sponsoring a project called the South County Connector, in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The study sponsors are committed to an open process that includes public involvement and input. Thus, you will be able to find the following information on this web site:
