About This Department

With more than 3,100 lane miles of road and street pavement and more than 184 bridges to maintain, Saint Louis County's Department of Highways and Traffic is Missouri's second largest caretaker of public roadways, exceeded only by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).

In addition to its administrative offices and parking garage operations in Saint Louis County Government's main campus in Clayton, Missouri, the Department maintains five Maintenance Districts; the Operations Division Headquarters on Schaefer Drive; the Division of Construction Headquarters, Materials Testing Lab and Survey Section on Schaefer Drive, and the Traffic Operations Building on Adie Road.

From these locations, under the leadership of Director Sheryl L. Hodges, D.E., P.E., L.P.G., the Department's 500 employees perform literally hundreds of duties necessary to ensure the smooth function of its road and bridge system, which encompasses the entirety of unincorporated Saint Louis County and designated arterial roads in incorporated communities. On a daily basis the Department oversees multi-million dollar road construction projects, patches potholes, plows snow, surveys streets, mows grass, monitors and assigns repair priority for road surfaces, designs and erects electric traffic signals, manages personnel records, assembles the annual operating budget, keeps County Government's 3,000-plus fleet of motor vehicles and small engine equipment functioning, repairs bridge decks, constructs new sidewalks and driveway approaches, installs traffic signs, designs complex new road construction plans and oversees parking garage operations for more than 2,400 vehicles.
