(The following is a press release issued by the St. Charles County Department of Community Health and the Environment.)
St. Charles County is announcing that Wilmer Road will be closed between the Boone Estates Drive and 350’ west of Dewberry Court beginning Monday, July 16, 2012 to allow for continued construction of the new Wilmer Road improvements.
Traffic will be required to use the signed detour route for approximately five weeks while the new road section is being built. Local traffic can access either side of the closure location, but no through traffic will be permitted.
Motorists can access Wilmer Road using Highway N to Hepperman Road to Interstate Drive. Signs notifying motorists of the closure and the necessary detours will be posted. The County will be using changeable message boards to notify residents of any date changes of the closure and opening.
This road project is part of a continuing effort by St. Charles County Government to improve the county’s road system for the safety of the traveling public.
