New Projects Underway:
New Street Light Installs Coming
Transformers have been ordered for new street lights to be installed at Dardenne Farms Drive at Highway N as well as Norgate Court at Gutermuth Road.
2022 Street Slab and Sidewalk Repairs & Replacement
In 2021, the City did a massive street slab replacement project throughout the City in area subdivisions. However, after the winter weather thaw and all the salt added to City roadways, more pot holes and erosion have appeared. Slab replacement and repairs will continue in 2022 within the City of Cottleville starting in Madison Park, Rosedale and Timberwood Farms subdivisions. Some work will be done by the St. Charles County Highway Department however, a larger portion of the work will be done by a private contractor selected through a bid process which is now underway.
Weiss Road Pedestrian Crosswalk at Lohmar Lane
Currently, the solar powered signal can only support yellow flashing lights. The upgraded equipment and signal has been ordered and will be installed upon its arrival.
