City Council approves contracts for Presidential Streets project

Bacon Fest approved for second year

City Hall

O’FALLON – The City Council approved a number of resolutions authorizing agreements with vendors to continue the construction work on the city’s Presidential Streets to perform stormwater remediation.

The Presidential Streets project has been an ongoing concern due to years of naturally occurring sediment and residents filling in ditches, leading to a history of drainage issues. The project has been phased out, and the resolutions passed by the Council on Monday dealt with the second and third phases.

The second phase consists of installing storm sewer pipe and inlets to allow the flow of stormwater, regrading a ditch along both sides of the existing roadways, and reconstruction of the roadway with a concrete ribbon curb and new asphalt surface.  In addition, the sanitary sewer main within the limits of the project will be replaced.
