Wildwood city leaders have applied for 80 percent of the costs for specified construction projects to be covered through state and federal entities, especially those available through SAFETEA-LU program.
Wildwood city council members recently approved legislation to proceed with trying to secure state and federal funding for 80 percent of the costs of three major projects:
- Replacing the Fox Creek Road Bridge in the westernmost portion of the municipality, estimated to cost $560,000
- Erecting Missouri Route 100 safety barriers, estimated to cost $280,000
- Building Manchester Road bike lanes, estimated to cost $1,040,000
Total cost of these projects is estimated at $1,628,000.
Wildwood city staff applied to the East-West Gateway Council of Governments, the Missouri Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration for the applicable funding under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU).
Council members also recently approved a resolution to contract with BFA Consultants to prepare a project manual and bidding documents for the resurfacing of four major roadways: Fox Creek Road, Strecker Road, Valley Road and Model Realty Road.
