Ladue Road Project

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 are required to stabilize Ladue Road after a failure of the hill on the south side of the road caused the shoulder to collapse. The failure showed itself with a crack in the Ladue shoulder in early May, following several days of rain.
