Wydown Blvd Resurfacing
As part of the city's pavement maintenance program, Wydown Boulevard will be resurfaced in 2014. Planning for this project began in February 2011, when the city applied for and received a federal grant for almost $3 Million through the East-West Gateway Council of Governments. Similar to the 2011 Forsyth/N. Mermac Resurfacing Project, this project will include not only the milling and overlay of the asphalt, but also upgrades to curb ramps and crosswalks and replacement of curb and gutter where needed. The video below gives a further explanation of the Forsyth/N. Meramec Resurfacing Project, which was similar in nature.
After applying for the grant in February 2011, the City was formally notified of the project's selection in June 2011. The funding agreement was approved by the Board of Aldermen in August 2011, and solicitation/selection of a design consultant took place between October and December. A design contract was signed February 2012, and MoDOT gave Notice to Proceed with design in March.
The design team for the project will consist of EDSI, who will provide surveying and design services, and Geotechnology, Inc., who will provide pavement coring and materials testing.
Geotechnology, Inc. performed pavement coring in late March 2012. Pavement coring involves cutting holes in the pavement in order to evaluate the existing cross-section of the pavement.
EDSI has completed survey operations. The preliminary plans have been approved, and EDSI continues to work on the final plans.
