ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX) – St. Charles residents will have the opportunity to choose what kind of updates they want to see on Fifth Street.
City Public Works officials are asking residents to come to an open house at St. John United Church of Christ Wednesday night from 5 to 7 p.m. to see the plans for the project.
City Engineer Kevin Corwin says the goal of the Fifth Street Gateway Project is to update old pavement, utilities and overall appearance of the street between Highway 70 and First Capitol Drive.
“There’s no real street lighting,” he notes as areas that are in need of improvement. “There’s really no landscape elements at all in the existing corridor.”
Corwin says the public will have a chance to look at three options, but he doesn’t know how much any of the options will cost.
“At this point this is all conceptual so we don’t have a lot of cost information,” he explains.
He did add, however, all options will be similar in cost.
Residents will have an opportunity to give feedback and input on the options tonight at the open house.
Comments will be reviewed and the final plan will be ready for approval by November.
