Brentwood/Carondelet Streetscape Project
In accordance with Clayton's Downtown Master Plan, the Public Works Department continues to look for opportunities to expand streetscape sidewalks and pedestrian features such as brick banding, street trees, streetlights, irrigation, plantings, and furniture. In February 2011, the City applied for and received a grant to add streetscape along the east side of Brentwood Boulevard from Carondelet to Forsyth and along the north side of Carondelet from Brentwood to Meramec. The total project cost is approximately $1M, with over $700,000 provided by the grant.
The Board of Aldermen approved a contract with Gershenson Construction at their June 10, 2014 meeting. Work began the week of July 7th and will last through October. During the project, on-street parking in front of 10 S. Brentwood will be eliminated. The new curbline along Brentwood was poured July 21st and 22nd. The next steps will include the excavation of tree wells and installation of irrigation and electrical conduits, as well as the installation of streetlight bases.
All of the sidewalks have been removed and replaced. Irrigation and electrical conduits have been installed. Streetlights have been installed and are currently being wired. Pedestrian pushbuttons and signals must still be replaced. Street tree installation will take place after the first frost, when the trees go dormant and can be dug up at nurseries.
