Construction is set to officially begin Monday in Town and Country on the Clayton Road Project.
Work will begin on the trail first, before resurfacing of Clayton Road. Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde said most of the clearing operations for the trail will take place in front of Monday which should have "minimal impact on traffic." Wilde said trail works needs to be complete first before paving begins so the new roadway surface is not damaged. No word yet on when actual road work will begin.
The City of Town and Country has created a Facebook page to update residents regularly on Clayton Road and trail construction.
The board of aldermen authorized an agreement between the city and L. Krupp Construction for $1,610,665.04 to begin Phase One of the project at the Sept. 26 meeting.
Phase one includes resurfacing on Clayton Road beginning at Highway 141 and going to Oak Springs Lane. It also includes the construction of the Clayton Road Trail, a pedestrian walkway, from to Oak Springs Lane.
The contractor also has the option to do some night paving. Wilde said more specific information, including overnight work, will be released shortly so residents are aware of any disruptions that may occur.
In addition to daily Facebook updates, Wilde will send out updates in email blasts weekly.
For more information, go to the city's website page dedicated to the project.
Residents can also email Public Works Director Craig Wilde if they would like to receive email updates or have questions. Wilde can also be contacted by phone at 314-587-2824.
Phase one is expected to be complete with the installation of landscaping in the spring.
