Traffic Studies
The Cities of Ladue & Brentwood hired CBB, the cities on-call traffic engineering consultant, to conduct a study of McKnight Road between Litzsinger and I-64. A joint public open house meeting took place on May 15, 2019 in Tilles Park to obtain feedback from the public about their concerns. All of the public feedback was compiled and analyzed, and the consultant identified potential solutions for implementation. Those solutions were presented to the public at a second public meeting which was held on October 30, 2019. The public comment period will be open until November 15, 2019. Then, CBB will review the public comments and produce a final report to both cities.

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 collected data. The first Public Information Meeting took place on March 12, 2019 and over 20 households were represented. CBB analyzed the data that has been collected and the ideas and concerns presented by the public and presented their findings to the City and Public at a second Public Open House meeting which was held on July 18, 2019. The four options that were presented included 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. The Public Works Committee recommended that one of the signalization options be implemented. The Final report for the study will be submitted to the City in Fall 2019.

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 in need of modification in order to work toward ADA compliance. The first project in the ADA implementation plan was the sidewalk modifications to Clayton Road in the Business District between I-64 and Conway Road which were completed Summer 2019. The next project now under design by Oates Associates, includes ADA sidewalk improvements on Clayton Road, west of Warson Road. The City will continue to improve the sidewalks on Clayton Road over the next several years.

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, this fall. Design will begin in 2020. 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 have been 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. SWT presented the Master Plan to City Council at the September 16, 2019 meeting and adopted the Master Plan for the property.
