The West Florissant Avenue Great Streets Project has currently received funding to design improvements on West Florissant Avenue from the Norfolk Southern Railroad in the south to Stein Avenue in the north. This part of the Project is called the Preliminary Design phase and will run until late 2017. The West Florissant Avenue Great Streets Master Plan, completed in June 2014, provided a vision for the Project thanks to community feedback. According to the Master Plan, Project construction will cost upwards of $33 million. Right now, we have $2.5 million dedicated to this Phase for Preliminary Design, which involves concept refinement, conceptual estimating, data collection, topographical and boundary surveys, geotechnical studies, utility coordination, community engagement, and design work among other tasks. This work is required before the project can be funded or built.
