Phase one of the Clayton Road Trail and Resurfacing Project is complete.
Ground was broken in September and construction began in October beginning Phase 1 of the three-phase project to repave Clayton Road from Hwy 141 to the city limits near Bopp Road. The project also includes creating a multi-use pedestrian trail on the north side of Clayton Road and installing a pedestrian walkway on the existing bridge over Hwy 141 which will connect the sidewalk on the north side of Clayton Road at Old Woods Mill Road to the intersection at Clayton Road and Woods Mill Road.
Phase one is wrapping up and construction is complete. It begins near , runs past school and ends just east of Topping Road, near Interstate 270 at Clayton Road.
Phase two, which starts east of Topping Road and extends east to Bopp Road is set to begin in fall of 2012 or spring of 2013.
"We're in the process of getting some approvals for our federal grant," Town and Country Department of Public Works Director Craig Wilde tells Patch.
Phase three is the pedestrian walkway along Clayton Road over Route 141.
Each phase of the project includes everything needed to study, develop and construct the multi-purpose trail in that area.
When completed, the trail will run the length of the city, from Town and Country Crossing in the west to the city’s eastern edge at Bopp Road.
The City of Town and Country has also created a Facebook page to update residents regularly on Clayton Road and trail construction.
In addition to daily Facebook updates, Wilde is sending out updates that Town and Country-Manchester Patch is posting for readers.
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.
