One of the toughest intersections for pedestrians in the city is getting a makeover.
The St. Louis Board of Aldermen on Friday set in motion a nearly $2 million upgrade to the intersection of Clayton, Skinker, and Oakland on the southwest corner of Forest Park. Improvements include new signals, bike lanes, and crosswalks.
The last of five men who escaped from the Pike County Jail last weekend is back in custody. Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte says 40-year-old William John Thomas Wilkerson of Florissant was captured overnight in St. Louis County. Korte says Wilkerson was caught after someone called police to report a suspicious person at an apartment complex. He was arrested without incident.
