New Sidewalks Set for Lemay Ferry

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) released a new project that will build sidewalks on Lemay Ferry Road from Buckley to Lindbergh in compliance with ADA standards.

The sidewalks will be on the east side of Lemay Ferry and will be 6 feet wide with wheelchair access. The project, estimated to cost $1 million, will be federally funded.  MoDOT will be taking bids from contractors in September and hope to start construction in October for completion by January, or in the spring if weather delays progress, said Kristy Yates, MoDOT’s area engineer.

Aside from new sidewalks, the modification will improve Metro bus stops along the route, widening their platforms and making them ADA compliant.

 MoDOT has been working on the project for more than a year.
