Deerfield/Wakefield storm sewer improvements, HR Green – IN PRELIMINARY DESIGN
The design phase began on 7/23/18. Preliminary design and evaluation of various design alternatives has 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. Currently, the design consultant is finalizing the preliminary design after having completed the survey and geotechnical borings and submitting a technical concept memorandum to MSD for feedback. The City plans to submit preliminary plans to MSD for review in late Spring 2021 and acquire the necessary easements for Phase I in Summer/Fall of 2021.
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. The City is waiting for MoDOT and FHWA to approve the engineering contract so that the design phase can begin which is anticipated in April 2021. Right-of-way will be obtained in 2022, and the project will be constructed in Calendar Year 2023.
ADA Sidewalk Improvements – Clayton Road
The City continues with the implementation phase of the ADA transition plan which identified both sidewalk and facility improvements that need modification in order to work toward ADA compliance. Clayton Road sidewalk improvements have been the highest priority for the City and the following provides a summary
· Phase I: Business District between I-64 and Conway Road; construction completed Summer 2019 by Spencer Contracting
· Phase II: Warson to Eversdale; construction completed Spring 2020 by SBC Construction
· Phase III: Eversdale to Lindbergh; bids due February 2021, SBC Construction is low bidder, construction Spring - Summer 2021
· Phases IV; Louwen to McKnight, design in 2021, construction 2022
· Phases V – VI; McKnight to Price Road; construction in 2023 – 2024
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. A public meeting will be held in Summer 2021.
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 will be seeking funding to begin development of the park but must also coordinate with MSD’s Deer Creek Sanitary Sewer replacement project that traverses the property.
Honeysuckle clearing began which was done by volunteer residents and the City’s BOSTA Committee on November 16, 2019 and on November 7, 2020. As of now, the City plans to apply for the Municipal Park construction funds in August 2021 for implementation in Calendar Year 2022.
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 will be presented to City Council at the April 26, 2021 meeting.
