FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MIDWAY ROAD OPENS

The St. Louis County Public Works Department will be reopening Midway Road to traffic between US Highway 2 and Interstate 35 today, June 22, 2012 at 1:00 pm. This segment of Midway Road was closed due to roadway erosion at the Midway River, located approximately 1,000 feet south of St. Louis River Road. The St. Louis County Public Works Department has repaired the road so it is passable to traffic.  Drivers are asked to take extra caution as portions of the shoulder will still be missing and there will be no guardrail. County Administrator Kevin Gray stated, “The Midway Road is a vital commercial corridor and traffic link for our citizens.  I’m greatly appreciative of the efforts of our Public Works team to accelerate the opening of this vital corridor.”
