An agreement between the State Transportation Department and the City of St. Louis will see MoDOT taking over maintenance of more than 32 miles of streets in St. Louis city limits. Certain regional arteries are currently maintained by the state until they hit the St. Louis city line, and the city takes over from there. That’s going to change as the state will now be responsible for refurbishing, sweeping, and patching potholes on parts of six highways. The City of St. Louis would still be responsible for snow removal, lighting, curbs, and sidewalks. The bottom line: State spending on St. Louis city roads will rise from $3.7-Million to $5.4-Million.
