Online Interested Parties meeting for St. Charles Road Sidewalk Project scheduled for May 26 - June 8

(COLUMBIA, MO) -

The City of Columbia Public Works Department is requesting public feedback regarding the St. Charles Road Sidewalk Project. As part of the City’s public involvement process for capital projects, and due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, Public Works is holding an online Interested Parties (IP) meeting from Tuesday, May 26 to Monday, June 8 at CoMo.gov/publicworks/stcharles-sidewalk

The St. Charles Road Sidewalk project will include the construction of a sidewalk along the north side of St. Charles Road between Demaret Drive and the property at the northwest corner of the St. Charles/Battle Avenue intersection. The project length is approximately 3,100 linear feet. There will be a crosswalk with a pedestrian flashing beacon connecting the existing sidewalk on the south side of St. Charles Road at Demaret Drive to the proposed sidewalk. Construction of this project is currently scheduled to begin in the fall of 2020. 

Investment for this project is estimated at $688,600 with the Public Works department and Columbia Public Schools (CPS) contributing equally to the project. The Public Works portion will be paid from the 2015 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) sales tax and the City/County/State joint tax.

The online comment period will run from May 26 to June 8.  During this time, citizens may review preliminary plans, contact Public Works staff with questions and comments and complete the IP Comment Form.  

Public Works staff may be contacted via the City’s number at 573.874.2489 or via email at pubw@CoMo.gov. The completed IP comment form may be submitted via email or mailed to the City of Columbia Public Works Department, 701 E. Broadway, Columbia, Missouri 65205.  Please include "St. Charles Sidewalk project" in the subject line.
