Street Resurfacing Project

Project Summary
The 2017 Street Resurfacing Project includes three locations: Claychester Drive (Bopp to bridge), Lillian Avenue, and Harwood Road. Claychester and Lillian include the removal of the existing concrete pavement and asphalt overlay, then construction of a new aggregate base, rolled curb, and full-depth asphalt pavement.  Harwood Road includes the replacement of select rolled curbs, addition of traffic calming features and parking areas, isolated base repair, milling of the existing asphalt surface, and installation of a new asphalt surface course. 

Open House March 8th for Claychester Drive and Lillian Avenue

The Director of Public Works gave a presentation at the April 10th Board of Aldermen meeting, describing this and all summer projects. A simplified version has been posted, as the original presentation included animation to explain stages of projects.

All of this summer's projects were covered on page 8 of the April Newsletter.

Bids for the project were opened on May 11th, and Gateway DCS was the successful bidder. The construction contract was approved at the 5/22 Board of Aldermen meeting.  Based upon citizen feedback at the 5/22 Board meeting, and Alderman Sansone's subsequent neighborhood meeting, the traffic calming, parking, and pedestrian features at Harwood Park have been removed from the project.

The full plans and specifications can be viewed online.  The traffic calming and parking that were proposed for Harwood Road are shown on sheets pages 115 and 116 of 130.  An exhibit further explaining the improvements is shown at the bottom of the page. More information on Traffic Calming can be found through the Institute of Traffic Engineers (ITE) or by downloading this presentation prepared for this project.

Project Update

Lillian Avenue has been reconstructed and is open to traffic.  Sod was installed 11/8, so only punchlist work remains.

Claychester has been reconstructed and is open to traffic.  Sod was installed 11/9 and 11/10, so only striping and punchlist work remain.

Up until 10/10, all of the work on Harwood Road was undertaken by Missouri-American Water Company and their restoration contractor. Gateway DCS started curb replacement on Thursday 10/12. The base of Harwood Road is in relatively good condition, so it is not being fully reconstructed like the other streets.   The asphalt surface was removed by a milling machine on Wednesday, 10/25.  Curbs and areas of bad concrete base (visible after milling) were then replaced.  Sod was installed Friday 11/10.  Paving was completed on Thursday 11/16.  Striping and punchlist work remain.
