The 2021 Capital Improvement Budget includes funding to purchase pedestrian signals for Des Peres Road. One set will be installed at Grandview (near the Lodge) and another between Goodson and Beaver Dam (exact location TBD). Upon approval by the Board in January, the equipment will be ordered, then later installed by Streets personnel in order to reduce costs. The Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system will be identical to those installed in 2019 on Tallie (at Pioneer Park) and in 2020 on Bopp (at St. Clement's School).
Project Update and Schedule
Due to the value of the equipment ($18k), the purchase must be formally approved by the Board of Aldermen at their next meeting in January. Delivery should occur by the end of February. Streets personnel will pour concrete bases, program the electronics, and install the equipment.
