Construction on Waterford Crossing Drive at Highway K began July 18 and is scheduled to run up to Dec. 15, according to Dan Buesse, Senior Project Manager with the City of O’Fallon.
“The project will widen the pavement on Waterford Crossing Drive at its intersection with Highway K in order to allow for dual left turn lanes and a shared through / right turn lane,” Buesse says. “While construction is underway, there will be daily lane closures on Waterford Crossing Drive and Highway K that will affect traffic. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes and / or avoid the area.”
We know that won’t be possible for our West Middle School families. In order to make the construction as easy to navigate as possible, we are asking the following of our families:
Check the West Middle website regularly. We will keep updates in the What’s New section, under the heading Construction Updates.
Listen to voicemail from school. We will use School Messenger to reach parents as quickly as possible where there is an unforeseen traffic situation. Our Transportation Department also uses School Messenger when buses are delayed. Please listen to voicemail before calling our office.
