We have recently received information from the St. Charles Highway Department that we wanted to share with you.
The total project cost for this project is estimated at $6.5 million dollars, which will be paid 100% by St. Charles County. The City of O’Fallon did not directly contribute to the cost of this project. The contract completion date for the bridge is April 30, 2016. After April 30, 2016, penalties will be incurred by the contractor, therefore. Millstone Weber (the primary contractor) may attempt to finish the majority of the work before the end of this year, weather and other factors permitting.
The County informed us that the bridge has been designed to pass the 100-year design flood with a No-Rise in water surface elevations and that there is a sidewalk proposed on the bridge. It will be separated from traffic by a concrete barrier. You can see the bridge plans as well as other documents related to this project on the Deer Creek Drive Extension Tab of this web site.
