The Winghaven Boulevard Road Improvement Project, Bill No. 7176, sponsored by Ward 3 council members Dale Kling and Nathan Bibb, was approved at the Feb. 27 City Council meeting by a vote of 10-0.
The bill authorizes improvements to Winghaven Boulevard from Route N on the north to Hammack Drive on the south. Improvements include resurfacing of Winghaven Boulevard and upgrades to help the intersections meet requirements of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act [ADA]. The council previously had approved a funding agreement with the Missouri Department of Transportation [MoDOT].
Additionally, a cost-share agreement for Phase 2 of the I-70 One Way Outer Road Project – Woodlawn Avenue to Hwy. K, was given a first reading at the council meeting.
Bill No. 7175, sponsored by Mayor Bill Hennessy, would authorize entering into a cost-share agreement between O’Fallon and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission for use of the MoDOT Cost Share Program to fund the project. The city already has secured $1,991,290 in St. Charles County Road Board funds. The cost-sharing agreement would provide an additional $1,096,503 to the project, for a total of $3,087,793. Total estimated cost of the Phase 2 project is $4,814,739. The city will pursue additional funding if any becomes available.
