Traffic concerns with Festus vaccination clinics

(Festus, Crystal City) There will be several Covid-19 vaccination clinics at the Festus location in the old Shop N Save building this month. The location sits right along the Festus-Crystal City border on Truman Boulevard and is also in a spot where traffic can be problematic. Crystal City City Administrator Jason Eisenbeis says it could be a concern.

Eisenbeis says members of the Jefferson County Health Department, who are holding the clinics, did meet with officials of the two cities to discuss the situation.

Those leaving the parking lot that want to go north will have to cross four lanes of traffic, without a stoplight, which is the biggest concern. Some electric warning signs have been placed near the location to help drivers become aware of the increased traffic.

The Jefferson County Health Department will hold three vaccination clinics at the location this week….on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
