Route 100 “Great Streets”
HR Green is currently working to complete bid documents to implement the first section of “Great Streets” improvements project on a 7-mile stretch of Manchester Road (Route 100) within the communities of Ellisville, Wildwood, and Ballwin (Route 109 to Maple Lane). In 2012, $5M of federal funding for was secured for the initial implementation of “Great Streets” improvements through the East-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWGCOG). This successful funding effort culminated a comprehensive multi-year planning study for the corridor that was led by EWGCOG and included significant public involvement.
The planned improvements includes numerous components such as new 1-mile long shared use path and new sidewalks, installation of wayfinding signage, block address monuments, and LED mast arm street name signs, aesthetic street and shared use path lighting and landscaping. One project goal that resulted from the planning study is the incorporation of access management techniques within the corridor. Thus, raised landscaped medians in conjunction with the promotion of cross-access easements are proposed at numerous points within the exiting roadway.
