The budget also includes micropaving for Ramsey, Rethmeier, Woerther, Rasch Ct., Essen, Turfwood, Towerwood and mill/repaving for: Joyce Ct., Amber Jack Ct., West Skyline, Sweetwood Ct., and Sweetwood Ln.
In conjunction with street resurfacing, sidewalks and curb ramps will be upgraded including Holloway Ridge, West Skyline, Fairway Lake, Oakwood Farms (Oakbriar to Jacob), Morewood, West Glen Village, and Castle Pines.
As of 1.28.19
The City of Ballwin plans to remove and replace deficient curb and gutters, and concrete pavement, and upgrade curb ramps to current ADA regulations on several streets in 2019. Below is a tentative schedule that will be updated periodically. All dates are estimated and subject to change based on weather conditions. Contractual jobs are indicated with an asterisk symbol.*
The City of Ballwin will also complete a number of projects in-house over the course of the year, thanks to the purchase of a new volumetric mixer. You can learn more about the new piece of equipment in the video below the list of projects.
Holloway Ridge Ct.* (Slab, Curb and Gutter, and Sidewalk Replacement) Work estimated to begin 5/1/2019
Update from 12.13.18
The Ramsey Bridge update is progressing as scheduled, and the foundation and wing walls are currently being poured. Obviously winter weather provides many unknowns for a construction project of this size, but our contractors are working diligently to keep things moving along. They've estimated the bridge and the road will reopen in March of 2019.
Update from 10.1.18
With the reopening of Ries Road to traffic, Ramsey Lane will now be closed to traffic at the bridge. Detour signs are posted. The project is expected to be completed in early spring, weather permitting.
Update from 5.14.18
Two bridges over Fishpot Creek will be replaced in 2018. The first to be replaced is on Ries Road between Manchester Road and Ramsey Lane. The other bridge is on Ramsey Lane just south of Manchester Road.
The Federal Highway Administration will reimburse the City 80% of the cost for both bridges. At their April 9, 2018 meeting the Board of Aldermen awarded contracts to KCI Construction for the construction of both bridges.
Once this bridge is reopened to traffic, the Ramsey Lane Bridge will be closed. The new Ries Bridge will consist of precast concrete arches with a sidewalk along both sides. Decorative wrought iron style fencing will be added for pedestrian safety. A concrete barrier will separate pedestrians and vehicles as they cross the bridge.
Ramsey Lane Bridge is expected to close in October and reopen in early spring of 2019. Traffic will be detoured via Ries Road, Sulphur Springs Road, and New Ballwin Road. The new bridge will consist of precast concrete girders. Sidewalks, wrought iron style fencing, and concrete barriers are also included along both sides.
ADA Sidewalk Transition Plan
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) law requires public entities to develop a formal transition plan identifying the steps necessary to meet ADA accessibility requirements for all pedestrian access routes by upgrading all noncompiliant features. The Street Transition Plan (PDF below) is attached that was adopted by the Board of Aldermen on February 27, 2017.
The Plan includes when, how, and where curb ramps and sidewalks will be updated to current ADA standards. All curb ramps will be upgraded when a street is overlaid, resurfaced, microsurfaced, or reconstructed. All new sidewalks will be constructed in accordance with the ADA regulations. Uneven sidewalks are to be eliminated in a timely manner.
