Duncan/Boyle intersection closed; detour to Newstead or Taylor

The intersection of Duncan and Boyle avenues closed Sept. 15 for the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) project to upgrade the Duncan Avenue storm sewer. The closure will remain in effect for about six weeks.

The closure has resulted in a number of employees using the CORTEX parking lot as a detour, even though the lot has not been designated as one. Employees should not use the lot as a route to bypass the intersection. The added traffic through the lot has posed significant safety issues for pedestrians.

Employees are encouraged to use Newstead or Taylor avenues instead of Boyle Avenue and the CORTEX lot to access parking garages and lots.

Questions can be directed to Scott Naeger, project manager, at 314-374-4089 or san2537@bjc.org
