Clayton to hold public open house for Maryland Avenue Resurfacing Project

The city of Clayton Public Works Department will hold a public open house for the federally funded 2019 Maryland Avenue Resurfacing Project from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 11 at the Center of Clayton, (50 Gay Avenue).

The city secured federal funding for the resurfacing of Maryland Ave. from Hanley Road to the western City limits in 2017. Design of the project began in 2017 with construction scheduled to begin in 2019.

A map provided by the city of Clayton outlines the portion of Maryland Ave. that will be resurfaced in 2019.

The project was awarded federal funding as a pavement preservation & resurfacing project, and it will include the mill & overlay of the asphalt pavement, reconstruction of curb ramps to bring in to compliance with ADA standards (as feasible), replacement of select sub-standard curb and gutter, and concrete base repair (as needed).

A public open house was held in late 2017 to gather input from the public and that input has been evaluated and options have now been developed to share with the public.

Public Works officials said the purpose of this latest meeting is to share options developed (based on feedback received from the public at the previous open house) and receive input from the public on these options.  The open house will be informal and the public is invited to attend anytime during these hours. There will be no formal presentation.

City officials said the construction could cause some traffic delays but they are working to minimize the impact.

“As with any construction, there may be some delays.  Much of this will be dependent on the construction schedule, which has not yet developed,” said Clayton Public Works Principal Civil Engineer Matt Malick. “The goal is to schedule the work to minimize the impact to the surrounding area and motorists that utilize Maryland Avenue on a daily basis.”

Those that are unable to attend can provide written comments to the following address but are asked to  include their name, address, phone/email along with any comments about the project.

Mailed comments should be sent to City of Clayton Public Works Dept.
Attn: Matt Malick at 10 N. Bemiston Ave. Clayton, MO 63105
