The much anticipated work on Stamper Lane in Godfrey will begin in a few weeks. Construction crews have set a tentative start day of Monday September 23 for the project that will widen the road between the entrance of Glazebrook Park and the east end of the Camelot Subdivision. The work is expected to last 75 days.
Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick says the village set a time limit so the project couldn't drag on and on for months:

At the same time, a new bike and walking path will be constructed along Stamper that will connect Glazebrook Park to the ball fields and to the path at Lewis and Clark Community College. When the road closes, those who live in Camelot will have to use the Godfrey Road entrance to get to their homes and Glazebrook Park can be accessed from the Pierce Lane side for soccer games and the Great Godfrey Corn Maze which opens this evening.
