About 20 years has passed since the Wayside Subdivision was bought out by the St. Louis Regional Airport and the residents of that Bethalto neighborhood were relocated. A developer is apparently close to announcing a redevelopment plan. As a result, the Village of Bethalto was recently asked to vacate streets on the property by the airport management.
But Bethalto Mayor Alan Winslow tells The Big Z he still doesn't know who the potential new tenants may be.

Wayside Estates was located across Illinois 111 from the airport, behind the Walgreen's store at the intersection with Illinois Route 140. It is also bordered by Illinois 255, which was not there when it was a residential community.
