MoDOT elaborates on 64/40 sound wall removals

A Richmond Heights resident wanted more explanation from the Missouri Department of Transportation about why sound walls are being removed along highway 64/40. MoDOT announced Friday that lanes will be closed on I-64 after morning rush Friday, October 17 to remove sound wall panels along the interstate, MoDOT stated in a press release. Up to two lanes on eastbound and westbound I-64 between Hampton and Hanley will be closed daily between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

MoDOT says crews noticed cracks in the posts holding the sound walls on several bridges, and the walls and posts are being removed as a safety precaution. Engineers will try to determine why the posts were cracking and determine solutions. Richmond Heights resident Anthony Galli asked MoDOT for details about when, or if, the sound wall would be rebuilt.

“Many of the residents were there long before there was a highway in their back yards,” Galli said in an email.

MRH Middle School students bring in carload of food for Weekend on Wheels

Maplewood United Methodist Church (MUMC) hosted a back to school dance party for area middle school students on Saturday, August 16th.  Admission was free, but students were asked to donate cash or non-perishable food items to Weekend on Wheels (WOW), a food program operated by students and faculty at the Maplewood Richmond Heights High School. On weekends, WOW sends nutritious food to the homes of children in the school district with a need.  MUMC was thrilled by the generous giving from the more than 40 students and families that attended the dance. 

Not only did this group donate a carload of food, but they also donated more than $100 in cash!  Their efforts will go a long way in helping get the shelves at the WOW re-stocked for the new school year. 

In addition to thanking the students who attended, MUMC would like express their gratitude to Get Happy Productions and the Green Family for donating the DJ services, lights and music for the dance!
