WALKING TO SCHOOL SAFETY TIPS
The Glendale Police Department would like to remind students and their parents of the following safety tips for walking to school. Walking to school can be fun, but you need to be safe while doing so. Please follow these safety tips to make sure you get to and from school without any problems.
Younger children should always walk with an adult. Children and parents walking together is a great form of exercise and a nice way to spend time together.
If children are old enough to walk to school without a parent, remember these safety tips:
• Walk with a friend or a group of friends when possible.
• Pick a safe route to and from school with your parents.
• Stick to the route you picked in case your parents need to find you.
• Always try to walk on sidewalks or designated walking paths.
• Don’t let your friends talk you into shortcuts that can be dangerous.
• When you are near the street, don’t push, shove or chase each other.
• Never take a ride from a stranger
• Do not approach a stranger’s car if they talk to you.
• Do not take a ride with someone else unless it has been arranged by your parents.
Always remember that drivers may not be able to see you very well.
• Try to wear bright colored clothing when walking to and from school.
• If it is dark getting outside, carry a flashlight or wear reflective clothes or gear.
LOOK FOR TRAFFIC
• Always watch out for cars and trucks at every driveway and intersection on your walk to and from school.
• Look for drivers sitting in parked cars. They may be getting ready to move.
CROSS THE STREET SAFELY
• Always try to cross the street at a cross walk or at a corner with a stop sign.
• Stop at the curb or edge of the street before considering to cross.
• Look left, right and left again for cars or trucks before you consider crossing.
• Wait until no traffic is coming before crossing the street.
• Keep looking for traffic while you are crossing the street.
• Walk (DON’T RUN) while crossing the street.
• Remember to obey all traffic signs, signals and adult school crossing guards while walking to and from school.
REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY TO YOUR PARANTS, A TEACHER OR TO THE GLENDALE POLICE DEPARTMENT.
Have a safe, fun & educational school year!

MoDOT to close Manchester west of Hanley for four months
News release link: https://www.modot.org/node/25656
Detour map link: https://www.modot.org/media/37678
ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use (Route 100) Manchester through Brentwood will need to determine their alternate routes now for an upcoming four-month closure.
At 8 p.m. Sunday, May 1, crews will close Route 100 just west of Hanley to replace the bridge over Black Creek. The roadway is projected to remain closed through late August.
Drivers will be able to access all business entrances between Brentwood Boulevard and Black Creek from the west during the closure. Drivers on westbound Manchester will need to turn onto Hanley before crossing Black Creek.
In Rock Hill, crews will close one lane in each direction on Manchester over Deer Creek and at Mary Avenue, also starting at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 1.
The signed detour for the closure includes Big Bend, the I-64 service roads and Brentwood Boulevard.
Also at 8 p.m., Sunday, May 1, crews will close the eastbound lanes of Manchester just east of Hanley Road for two months while crews make updates to the sewer system.
The bridge replacement is part of work MoDOT is doing to make significant improvements to sidewalks along Route 100 between Big Bend and Lindbergh to bring them up to Americans with Disability Act requirements and will wrap up the project with resurfacing, in summer 2023.

“Our mission is to provide a world-class transportation system that is safe, innovative, reliable and dedicated to a prosperous Missouri.”
Missouri American Water’s contractor, Kelpe Contracting, has been working nearly a year now to replace the water mains along Hanamoor Ct, both sections of Moreland Ave, the 700 block of Edwin Ave, and E. Essex Ave from Devon Rd to N. Sappington Rd.
To date, all plumbing work is complete. No more water mains or private water lateral line work is needed. However, substantial pavement and yard restoration work is still pending.
Kelpe crews have already restored the concrete pavement base layer and top asphalt layers of the street along the unit block of Moreland Ave and E. Essex Ave. Winter weather and contractor availability has prevented Kelpe crews from continuing the pavement work until now.
On Monday of next week (March 14) Kelpe will resume the pavement restoration work which will require them to excavate the trenched areas where the water main and water laterals were dug through and installed along the 900 block of Moreland Ave, 700 block of Edwin Ave, and Hanamoor Ct. Kelpe crews will also be restoring the street crossings within the intersections of N. Sappington Rd at Moreland Ave and E. Essex Ave, and some additional street crossings along E. Essex Ave at Edwin Ave and Parkland Ave.
Kelpe will have crews in Glendale on Friday of this week to clean up their work areas, organize the scattered cones and signage, and to distribute letters door-to-door notifying homeowners of the upcoming work.
Similar to the pavement restoration work along E. Essex and the unit block of Moreland, the trench lines will be excavated and a new concrete base will be installed. The trench lines and concrete will be exposed for a few days until Kelp’s asphalt paving subcontractor, N.B. West Contracting, arrives to restore the top asphalt layer. Unlike the work along E. Essex and Moreland, N.B. West will follow closely behind Kelpe crews (within days) instead of weeks.
This map represents the city’s 2022-2024 street resurfacing and improvement schedule.

Streets highlighted in green indicate resurfacing work scheduled or 2023. Those streets include:
Streets highlighted in yellow indicate resurfacing work scheduled for 2024. Those streets include:
Shown in red, the cities of Glendale and Kirkwood have partnered on a federally funded grant to make improvements to E. Essex Ave, scheduled for 2022. E. Essex Ave will be reconstructed with new concrete curb and guttering the length of the road from N. Sappington Rd to the Glendale/Kirkwood city limit line with new concrete sidewalks on the north side of the street. The street itself will be resurfaced with asphalt. The new sidewalks will continue westward into Kirkwood, ending at Dickson St.
The city has also recently submitted another application for federal funding to make minor repairs, replace deteriorated crosswalks, and resurface N. Sappington Rd from Manchester Rd to Lockwood Ave. Grant notifications will be made in the fall of 2021 and, if awarded, work along N. Sappington Rd would take place in 2025.
