Each year, the City replaces approximately 150 concrete street slabs under contract. City crews replace additional slabs on an emergency basis. The City marks the locations to be removed and replaced, then the contractor performs the work.
Please note that neither the existing nor new concrete is "colored" concrete. While there is some limestone-based concrete around the city, most of the concrete contains Meramec sand and gravel, which provides the orange/brown look. While the new concrete initially appears to be a bright white, over time, the color mellows and the top layer of cement wears off, revealing the brown sand and gravel underneath.
The 2017 project consisted of slab replacements on Westledge Court. Bids were opened on March 9th, and E. Meier was awarded the contract. Work began the week of June 5th and all of the slabs have now been replaced. The new concrete needs to cure for approximately one week before being opened to traffic. Backfilling and restoration will take place at that time.
