Starting today, a number of Boone County roads are undergoing construction. Lake of the Woods Road is closed at the intersection with St. Charles Road and is scheduled to reopen on August 5. Rangeline Road is down to one lane between Richland Road and Highway WW so the road can receive a new fog seal treatment. Rangeline is set to reopen to full traffic by Friday.
Collegiate Housing Partners of St. Louis is seeking to build a 112-uniit housing complex near Mark Twain residence hall in downtown Columbia on Conley Ave. One issue standing in the way of the company’s plans is parking. The company wants to provide 115 parking spaces, but city code requires 300 spaces for a complex of this size.
Columbia Development Services Manager Pat Zenner said parking is an issue the city has yet to figure out.
