ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – Perplexed by the megapixels popping up around town? Viewers noticed the giant white circles showing up in south St. Louis County. Once you see these white spots, you can’t un-see them. From up above, real-life might imitate art and look like a Pac-man game. But the dots put there by MoDOT, will help a future project take focus.

According to a spokesman from St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger’s office, “These are survey markers for an aerial survey...This will allow us to turn over survey data to the consultant we pick for the final design work on the project between Lindbergh and I-270 to keep the project moving in a timely fashion.”

So if you see more spots showing up around the region, you are seeing things, your mind’s not playing tricks with you.

“Have not noticed them,” said a motorist.

Oh, you’ll be seeing spots in neighborhoods, along shoulders, and in cul-de-sacs in the county, that is, unless you’re hyper-focused on the Cardinals in the postseason.
