Missouri American Water to Replace 7,940 Feet of Main in Bel-Ridge

BEL-RIDGE, MO (May 3, 2021) –  Missouri American Water is replacing more than 7,940 feet (1.5 miles) of water main in Bel-Ridge along Natural Bridge Rd. from Monday, May 3 until August 2021.

“We are making necessary investments to support our St. Louis County water system,” said Debbie Dewey, president of Missouri American Water. “The community will see enhanced water pressure to customers’ homes and fire hydrants to support our local fire fighters.”

Construction will occur on eight streets within the City of Bel-Ridge, including Boston Ave, Elmhurst Dr, Leeward Dr, Marcella Ave, Ramona Ave, Ranch Lane, Sargent Ave, and Spur Lane, from Monday, May 3 until the end of August 2021.

Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Traffic will be impacted by excavation activities and site restoration activities.

While construction is occurring, motorists should use caution when driving in the construction areas and obey traffic signs, detour routes and flaggers.
