Existing West Main Street is a two-way, minor arterial roadway the connects Downtown Belleville with commercial, residential, and educational institutions, including Lindenwood University and Union Elementary School, on the west end of Belleville.  The asphalt roadway, concrete curb and gutters, and sidewalks are showing signs of deterioration and are in poor condition.  The existing sidewalks do not meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) policies and do not provide a continuous ADA pedestrian route along West Main Street.       


The proposed project improvements will address several of the poor condition items along West Main Street.  The project will include milling of the existing asphalt pavement and resurfacing with a 2-inch hot-mix asphalt (HMA) overlay.  The project will also include the removal and replacement of the existing concrete curbs and sidewalks in areas where they are in poor condition or do not meet ADA standards.  The new concrete sidewalks and curb ramps will meet ADA requirements.

In the St. Louis Metropolitan area, the federal funding request applications are submitted to the East-West Gateway Council of Governments for review and selection.  KEG prepared the STP grant application for the West Main Street project for the Fiscal Year 2016-2019.  The STP application included an evaluation of the existing and proposed bicycle and pedestrian facilities, utilities, safety, sustainable development, and the movement of goods.  KEG also prepared a schedule of key milestones for the project development from contract execution through project construction, as well as a construction cost estimate for the proposed improvements.
