Fee Fee Rd April 11, 2016

Fee Fee Rd Phase II - April 6, 2016
J. M. Marschuetz contacted the City early this morning regarding the need to push the establishment of the Fee Fee Phase 2 detour to Monday morning. The delay is due to the subcontractor missing several detour signs, which should be delivered on Friday, April 8, 2016. Public Works stresses the importance of having a complete detour as designed by the engineer and missing key signs would impose a significant safety hazard.
Pushing the detour off until Monday allows more time for residents to see the four message boards that are now on site (see attached map for their locations). Public Works has provided the Community Center a detour map/poster to put on display in their lobby. There is also one available in the City Hall lobby.
Fee Fee Rd Phase II - March 28, 2016
The City of Bridgeton will soon be starting construction on the second phase of Fee Fee Road. This project will fully replace the existing street from Old St. Charles Road to Interstate 70. Work will include constructing a new concrete roadway, adding stormwater pipe and additional inlets, adding sidewalks on both sides of the street, improving driveway entrances, and replacing the traffic signals at Old St. Charles Road. It is anticipated this project will last approximately one year, depending on weather conditions.
The Contractor, J. M. Marschuetz, will go door to door talking to residents and handing out mailers at least one day prior to any work that will impact your driveway. The current plan is for J. M. Marschuetz to start their construction work between St. Charles Rock Road and Interstate 70. While J. M. Marschuetz is constructing the new roadway in this northern half of the project, several utility companies will be relocating their infrastructure on the southern half. Ameren will be installing 16 new poles between Old St. Charles Road and St. Charles Rock Road, as well as transferring all of their existing lines onto these new poles. Once Ameren has their lines transferred several telecommunication companies, such as AT&T and Charter, will be moving their lines from the old poles onto the new poles as well. Missouri American Water will also be working in the street between Old St. Charles Road and Blake Avenue to replace approximately 1,300 linear feet of an old 1940’s water main. During the utility relocation work, short-temporary disruptions in service can be expected.
Starting in the next two to three weeks traffic will be limited to one-way, as posted, while the utility companies relocate their services and while the contractor begins the project. The City has communicated this with first responders, the school district and trash services. Traffic will always be directed going away from St. Charles Rock Road (see attached map), per the recommendations from the fire protection district and ambulance services. Temporary delays are to be expected and can last up to 10 minutes during concrete pours. Access to driveways along the street will also be affected during removal and replacement of the street. The contractor and City staff will help resolve parking issues as work commences. Please be mindful of the work going on in your area and give yourself plenty of extra travel time.
If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact the Public Works Department at 314-739-7665, Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or visit the City’s website at www.BridgetonMO.com.
We thank you for your patience as we improve Fee Fee Road.
