Willow Hill – Reroute Along Road (infrastructure), HR Green
The design phase began in Summer 2018. The preliminary design was approved by MSD, there have been public meetings, and then plan revisions were required based on utility conflicts. The City has acquired all of the required easements with the exception of one. Once the remaining two easements have been obtained, the design can be completed, and the project will be bid for construction. Calendar Year 2021 is anticipated for construction.
Robin Hill Lane/McKnight Lane Bank Stabilization, Intuition & Logic
The design phase began on 7/2/18. Public information meetings were held in July and October 2018 and sixteen follow up property owner meetings took place since that time. The preliminary plans were approved, and easement documents were prepared. Easement acquisition was completed with the acquisition of easements from ten property owners. Final design is in the process of being completed, and the project will be bid for construction. Calendar Year 2021 is anticipated for construction.
Deerfield/Wakefield storm sewer improvements, HR Green
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 or three phases over the next several years and the City has selected a preferred design alternative. Currently, the design consultant is having the project area surveyed so that the design phase can advance.
South Tealbrook Drive storm sewer improvements, Hart Engineering
The design phase began on 7/2/18. A field review was completed, meetings with the impacted residents impacted has occurred, the preliminary plans were approved by MSD, easements have been obtained, final plans were prepared, and bids were received July 10, 2020. The construction contract was awarded on July 20, 2020 to Plattin Creek Excavating, LLC and construction is currently underway with a scheduled completion date of December 2020.
Babler Lane storm sewer improvements, EDM
The design phase began on 9/24/18. A Public Informational Meeting was held on January 29, 2019 at Ladue City Hall where the pipe alignment was presented. MSD has approved the preliminary plans and the City has begun to acquire the necessary easements for the project. Once the easements are obtained, final design will proceed. Construction is anticipated for late 2021 and will extend into 2022.
Intersection Improvements at Warson Road and Conway Road
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. In the Fall of 2020, the City will execute a program agreement with Missouri Highways Commission and then the design phase can begin.
ADA Sidewalk Improvements
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. 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 (Phase I). Phase II was completed Spring 2020 by SBC Construction and 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 and with improvements in 2021 planned from Eversdale to Lindbergh.
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 has executed a program agreement with MoDOT, issued the RFQ for engineering services, conducted interviews for the three most qualified firms for the project in March, and selected CMT for the engineering project. City Council approved the engineering contract with CMT at their April 27, 2020 meeting and design will begin in June 2020 with survey work. 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. The design phase began with survey in Summer 2020 and preliminary plans are in the process of being prepared in Fall 2020.
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. 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 small parking area as first 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. There will be another Honeysuckle Hack planned for 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.
2020 Microsurfacing Project
Microsurfacing, a latex modified slurry seal, will be applied to Clayton Road from Lindbergh Blvd. to Lay Road. The bids for the project were due on July 14, 2020 and City Council awarded this project to Missouri Petroleum at their July 20th City Council meeting. The Notice to Proceed was issued on August 3rd and the contractor will be given 60 days to complete the project. The contractor has scheduled the work for the week of September 28, 2020.
