May 18, 2012Drivers bouncing on Rock Hill Road just south of the Manchester Road intersection will have to wait a while longer before hitting newly-paved roadway.
City Administrator George Liyeos told the Rock Hill Board of Aldermen on Tuesday that "internal problems" with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) have put the project in limbo.
"We thought we had approval, then MoDOT laid off a number of people a couple of months ago and the person that used to be on the project is no longer there," he said. "Those approvals that we had have been reconsidered by MoDOT."
Liyeos said a meeting with MoDOT and East West Gateway was scheduled for May 17.
"If MoDOT approves it (Rock Hill Road), we will go full steam ahead. If not, we will have to bring it back to the board for their consideration on what needs to be done."
The city had also received approval on selecting an engineer for work on Bismarck Avenue, but MoDOT said that had be to rebid, which the city has done.
Razing The Parks Building
City Attorney Paul Martin said the city could use capital improvement funds to pay for the demolishing the parks and recreation building at 827 N. Rock Hill Road.
City Administrator George Liyeos said the city would seek bids on the project.
