Flamingo Dr., east of Shackelford, Permanently Closing

Flamingo Drive, on the east side of Shackelford Road in Florissant, will permanently close at its connection with Shackelford at 9 a.m. next Tuesday (August 8, 2017).

The closure was prompted by St. Louis County’s signalization of the entrance to Hazelwood N.W. Middle School, which is located on the west side of Shackelford, roughly 50 feet north of Flamingo. Scheduled to be activated next week, the signals are part of the County’s $7.6 million improvement project on Shackelford between Humes and Charbonier. Work began on the project last fall.

Officials say the continued, north-bound flow of motor vehicles from Flamingo’s eastern leg off Shackelford would have posed safety and traffic flow problems at the elementary school.

The pedestrian signal at Flamingo will be removed and incorporated into the new signalization system at Hazelwood N.W. Middle School.

Flamingo Drive also runs west of Shackelford. However, because it serves as a primary access street to several subdivisions, this section of the road will remain open.
