ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Crews have begun removing paving around manholes in downtown St. Louis in preparation for a pavement project this weekend.
The project will primarily be focusing on 4th Street and Broadway which is the street along the east side of Busch Stadium. The streets will also be getting Americans with Disablities Act (ADA) compliant ramps at intersections.
“On nights there are Cardinals games, the paving won’t start until after the game is over and the traffic has cleared downtown,” said Richard Bradly, President of the Board of Public Service. “It will be finished by 6:00 a.m. On other evenings, when there are no Cardinals games, the paving and milling will begin around 6:00 p.m.”
The cost of the project is $1 million. 80 percent of the cost is being paid for by the federal government.
The expected completion time for the project will be the end of September.
