The city has closed a portion of Ladue Road east of New Ballas in both directions for repairs. Officials anticipate the closure will last through the end of September. The affected area runs between New Ballas Road and the entrance to Shaare Emeth.
The emergency repairs were required to stabilize Ladue Road after a failure in the hill on the south side of the road caused deterioration. The project to stabilize Ladue Road was completed on August 16. MSD completed their restoration work on August 28, and Laclede Gas finished installing a new gas main well ahead of their September 15 deadline.
The city's project to restore Ladue Road to traffic began the week of September 1. Crews will substantially complete the replacement of the south shoulder by September 15. They will begin work to rebuild and repave damaged areas of the pavement and to install new guardrail during the week of September 18. The final pavement surface and new lane markings are expected the week of September 25. The project remains on schedule to open Ladue Road by October 1.

Police have established detours on Spoede Road and Graeser Road for westbound traffic and on New Ballas Road for eastbound traffic. Olive Boulevard is the suggested alternate route during the closure. Chief Glenn Eidman has issued a police order prohibiting non-local traffic on Ladue Road from Mosley to the closure and establishing a “No Thru Street” status for Magna Carta Drive prohibiting through traffic.
“This decision was made in the best interest of safety and the infrastructure of the roadway in the Runnymeade Subdivision,” said Eidman. “The residential neighborhood and its streets were not designed to handle the volume of traffic that could otherwise result from the closure of Ladue Road.”
