Deerfield/Wakefield storm sewer improvements, HR Green – Preliminary Design for Phase I is nearing Completion with Easement Acquisition to start Summer 2021

The design phase began on 7/23/18.  Preliminary design and evaluation of various design alternatives have been taking place.  This project will be constructed in two phases over the next ten years and the City has selected a preferred design alternative.  The preliminary plans were submitted to MSD who have provided comments back to the City’s consultant, HR Green.  The consultant has resubmitted the plans in late May 2021 to MSD.  Additionally, easement documents have been prepared and easement acquisition will begin soon. The City plans to begin to acquire the necessary easements for Phase I in December 2021, although MSD reviews have been ongoing due to complications with the easement types.

Intersection Improvements at Warson Road and Conway Road (80% Federally Funded)

Based on the 2019 traffic study that the City completed for the Warson corridor at Conway Road, Federal Funds were applied for in February 2020 for the project design, ROW, and construction and that funding application is in the process of being prepared.  The City learned that the funding application was successful and will be recommended to the Board of EWGCC in Summer 2020.  The City executed the program agreement with Missouri Highways Commission at their December 21, 2020 City Council meeting.  The City issued a Request for Qualifications for the engineering phase, reviewed the seven Statements of Qualifications that were submitted, interviewed the three most qualified firms in February 2021, negotiated a contract with EFK Moen who was the selected firm.  MoDOT and FHWA approved the engineering contract, and the design phase has begun.  Coordination with Ameren is underway who will be replacing power poles in this corridor in Fall 2021.  The preliminary plans were submitted to MoDOT on July 6, 2021 and were approved in late September 2021. A public meeting is scheduled for 11/18/21.  Right-of-way is scheduled to be obtained in 2022, and the project construction planned for Calendar Year 2023.  The City’s Project Manager is Anne Lamitola,

Dielman Road Improvements (80% Federally Funded for ROW & Construction)

The City applied for Federal Funds for Dielman Road Improvements in February 2019 and learned that the application was successful. The City executed a program agreement with MoDOT, then hired CMT to perform the engineering for the project after following a Qualifications Based Selection process.  City Council approved the engineering contract with CMT at their April 27, 2020 meeting and design has been underway since that time.  Dielman Road is one of two remaining roads identified for sidewalks in the 2012 Sidewalk Implementation Plan.  Six-foot-wide sidewalks will be installed on the west side of Dielman between Ladue Road and the northern municipal boundary near Tamarack.  Improvements to the pavement will also be part of the project.  The sidewalk will connect to sidewalks that have been installed in Olivette on Dielman Road.  Federal Funding will pay for 80% of the right-of-way and construction costs.  The design phase began with survey in Summer 2020, environmental clearances were obtained in March 2021, and preliminary plans have been prepared and were submitted to MoDOT on March 31, 2021.  The well attended public meeting was held on July 13, 2021 at 4:00 pm. The right-of-way plans were submitted in September 2021 to MoDOT for approval and have been approved.  Easement acquisition will begin after MoDOT authorization, following review of proposals submitted in response to a RFP. The City’s Project Manager is Anne Lamitola,


Deer Creek Preserve, formerly Edie’s Mulch Site

The City applied for and obtained a Municipal Park Planning Grant to develop a master plan for the 12.5-acre site which is currently being utilized as a transfer station for the City’s leaf and mulch program on approximately 3 acres of the site.    Public meetings were held in 2019 along with a community input survey and a Master plan was adopted by City Council in September 2019.  The master plan for the property includes a trail and a small parking area as priority amenities.  The property is located off S. 40 Drive and is along the Deer Creek corridor.  The property is currently being impacted by MSD’s Deer Creek Sanitary relief sewer project which will be under construction through Calendar Year 2021. 


The City has applied for funding through the Municipal League to begin development of the park and continues to coordinate with MSD’s Deer Creek Sanitary Sewer replacement project that traverses the property. The City learned that the grant application was successful, and the next step will be to enter into an agreement with the Grant Commission.  Implementation will take place in Calendar Years 2022-2023.


Rodes Park – Master Plan

The City obtained a Municipal Park Planning Grant to develop a master plan for the park located at the corner of Ladue and Warson Road.  The grant was sought after recommendation from the City’s Beautification Open Space and Tree Advisory Committee to City Council who approved the application.  The Master Plan will make recommendations for plantings, access & parking, and potentially a perimeter walk path.  Two public meetings to obtain feedback about the park were held on January 28th and February 25th virtually, and a survey was issued that over 300 people submitted.  The Master Plan was presented to City Council at the April 26, 2021 meeting and was adopted by Resolution. The City will begin design in 2022 of the streambank stabilization and bridge installation.
