IMPORTANT UPDATE - Business 50 West Resurfacing & Bicycle/Pedestrian/ADA Safety Enhancements
DECEMBER 15, 2020 UPDATE -
The majority of the work has been completed in the overlay and addition of Bike/Pedestrian lanes alongside of
Business 50 West.
Work will continue along the shoulders and in any area along the road where dirt was disturbed, including lawns and driveways. All areas disturbed will be reseeded prior to Spring since reseeding them right now would not be productive.
Thank you for your patience as you get used to the changes in lane configurations and signage.
Please note that there is NO PARKING AT ANY TIME in the new bike ped lanes.
If you live along Bus. 50 west, do not put your trash containers on the pavement. Allied Waste has agreed to empty your container if it is sitting on your property just off the bike/ped lane.
If you are driving, please observe the 35 mph speed limit at all times and the school zone speed limit of 20 mph from 7 - 9 am and 3-5 pm on weekdays.
DRIVERS - Please watch out for bicyclists, walkers, joggers, dog walkers and any non-drivers along the roadway.
NON-DRIVERS - If you are using the bike/ped lanes, watch out for vehicles, especially at intersections and driveways.
Persons using the bike/ped lanes may park at City Hall on the East end or Clarose on the west end. No overnight parking or commercial truck parking.
If you are walking your dog(s), please clean up after them.
Thanks to Modot and the Federal Highway Administration and Cole County for chipping in financially to help St Martins make these improvements possible.
Thank YOU for your help in making these improvements a valuable resource for area residents and a safer place to walk, bike or drive.
