Traffic Studies

The City of Ladue approved a work order with CBB, the cities on-call traffic engineering consultant, and Intergovernmental Agreement for a joint study with Brentwood for McKnight Road between Litzsinger and I-64.  Brentwood City Council has approved the intergovernmental agreement and a kick-off meeting took place in April.  The crosswalk improvements at Sonora Drive were installed in April 2019.  A joint public open house meeting took place on May 15, 2019 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm.  All of the public feedback will be compiled and analyzed.  The consultant will identify potential solutions for implementation.  Those solutions will be presented to the public at a second public meeting which will be held in August or September 2019. 

The City of Ladue is working with CBB, the cities on-call traffic engineering consultant, for a study on Warson Road at Conway Road & Ladue High School and the nearby vicinity.  Concerns in this area include high traffic volumes including Ladue High School traffic, traffic back-ups at the intersection, delays in turning from side streets onto Warson Road, and neighborhood cut-through traffic.  The study began in January 2019 with a kick-off meeting.  CBB has begun to collect data.  The first Public Information Meeting took place on March 12, 2019 and over 20 households were represented.  CBB is currently analyzing the data that has been collected and the ideas and concerns presented by the public.  CBB presented their findings to the City and Public at a second Public Open House meeting which was held on July 18, 2019.  Now, the City is evaluating the four options that were presented at the meeting which include a round-a-bout, a mini round-a-bout, a traffic signal without the addition of turn lanes, and a traffic signal with the addition of turn lanes.    

ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

The City has begun the implementation phase of the ADA transition plan which identified both sidewalk and facility improvements that are needed in order to work toward ADA compliance.  The first project in the ADA implementation plan are sidewalk modifications to Clayton Road in the Business District between I-64 and Conway Road The plans have been completed, the four easements have been obtained, the project has been bid on April 16, 2019 and construction will be completed this summer by Spencer Contracting.  Construction began in late June and will be completed by August 2019.    The next project now under design by Oates Associated, includes ADA sidewalk improvements on Clayton Road, west of Warson Road.

Dielman Road Improvements

The City applied for Federal Funds for Dielman Road Improvements in February 2019 and learned that the application was successful.  The City participated in the East-West Gateway Council of Governments Open House on July 9, 2019 then after EWGCC Board approval in August 2019, the City will execute a program agreement with MoDOT who administers federal funds on behalf of FHWA.    Dielman Road is one of two remaining roads identified for sidewalks in the 2012 Sidewalk Implementation Plan.  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 will soon be installed in Olivette on Dielman Road.  Federal Funding will pay for 80% of the right-of-way and construction costs.


Edie’s Mulch Site

The City applied for and obtained a Municipal Park Planning Grant to develop a master plan for the 14.5-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.    The property is located off S. 40 Drive and is along the Deer Creek corridor.  The property will be significantly impacted by MSD’s Deer Creek Sanitary relief sewer project.  The park planning kick-off meeting was held on April 2, 2019 with staff, the park planning consultant (SWT), and the BOSTA (Beautification, Open Space, and Tree Advisory) Board.  The first of two public meetings were held on March 14, 2019 with 36 residents in attendance.  The concepts include a linear trail through the property with benches, two shelters, and plantings.  There is also a survey link on the website public input can be submitted.  The second meeting took place on June 24, 2019 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm and a refined design was presented.  Information from both presentations can be found on the Public Works page of the City’s website. 


2019 Microsurfacing Project

Microsurfacing, a latex modified slurry seal, will be applied to Ladue Road from Lindbergh Blvd. to the eastern City limits (near Gay Avenue) and on North McKnight Road for its entire length.  The bids for the project were due on April 12, 2019 and City Council awarded the project at their April 22nd City Council meeting.  The Notice to Proceed was issued on May 13 to Missouri Petroleum and the contractor will be given 60 days to complete the project.  The microsurfacing work took place overnight from June 20 – 27th with pavement markings completed the week of July 1st.
