Temporary Stop Signs Will Be Installed on S. Geyer Road Starting December 7
The City will install temporary stop signs on December 7 on the stretch of South Geyer Road that runs from Big Bend. Blvd., south to Watson Road and to the entrances to I-44 and I-270. The stop signs will be in place for a period of 90 days while the City tests them as a potential traffic and safety solution.
Motorists who regularly travel south from Big Bend, particularly those who commute to and from the St. Louis Community College at Meramec campus, are advised to look for a different route for accessing the two interstates. Traffic will be slowed considerably with the addition of the stop signs.
Don't Stop On the Tracks: Motorists are also advised not to stop on the railroad tracks that cross Big Bend at Geyer. This is an extreme safety hazard, and Kirkwood Police may issue citations to motorists who are stopped on the tracks due to a traffic back-up.
Kirkwood City ordinances allow City staff to use temporary stop signs for a 90-day trial period. At that time, Kirkwood City Council will vote on whether or not to make the stop signs permanent.
