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 proposed modifications to the agreement which will be were reviewed and approved by Ladue City Council at the January 2019 City Council meeting.  Brentwood will vote on the updated Intergovernmental Agreement on February 4, 2019.

The City of Ladue approved a work order 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 will begin data collection and the first Public Information Meeting will take place in March 2019.

The next area for study is the pedestrian crosswalks in the Clayton Road business district, including the intersection of Conway and Clayton.

ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

The City contracted with an engineering consultant in 2017 to assist with development of an ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan which is required by the U.S. Department of Justice.  That process included evaluating City sidewalks on right-of-way to identify obstacles, City facilities, holding a public meeting, meeting with Paraquad, presenting the draft plan to City Council, estimating costs to bring facilities into compliance, holding a 30-day public review period for public comment, and the approval of the plan by City Council by resolution on March 26, 2018.  The implementation of the ADA plan will begin with sidewalk modifications to Clayton Road in the Business District.   A work order with Oates Associates was approved on September 17, 2108 to proceed with the design for ADA sidewalk and ramp improvements on Clayton Road between Conway and Warson Road.  Oates Associates is continuing to work on the plans for the sidewalk improvements and temporary construction easements will be required prior to the bidding of the project. 

Dielman Road Improvements

The City will be applying for Federal Funds for Dielman Road Improvements in February 2019.  Dielman Road is one of two remaining roads identified for sidewalks in the 2012 Sidewalk Implementation Plan.  Sidewalks are contemplated for 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 up to 80% will be applied for but is a competitive process. 

Edie’s Mulch Site

The City has applyied for 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.
