The #StCharlesCounty Road Board evaluates and recommends road and bridge projects to be funded by the County's transportation sales tax. https://www.sccmo.org/216/Road-Board
The purpose of the st. Charles County Road board is to evaluate and recommend different Road projects using the county's half cent sales tax, and we work with the municipalities and the st. Charles County Highway Department, primarily the County Road board is funded by a half cent sales tax collected by the county, and it goes to arterial roads, economic development projects and congestion projects. Well, if the road board funds were always leveraging our dollars with you municipalities, so we either have an 80/20 match or sometime there's federal dollars, and we basically would leverage off those dollars.
Also, a really good example would be phase three of page Avenue, which was a hundred million dollar design-build project, where the county put in twenty five million, the state put in 50 million and the federal money was twenty five million to get that hundred million dollar project done on an annual basis. We go through and get updates on all the projects we have going on the three-year tip the bulk of the year. We actually are looking at new applications to again kind of vet, those out approve them and then recommend those to the County Council.
There's a lot of construction going on. We've got a new overpass out once fill that will come online in the next couple years, called Dave local, Parkway, very exciting in the west end of the county. We just completed 5th Street, all the arterial roads, and we worked on a small project out in Saint Peter's with BJC hospital.
That was very good and we also did some economic development work in conjunction with the GM plant improvements with the traffic lights and highway a we also funded the improvements for the Amazon Fulfillment Center, and we were able to do that very quickly with the help of the city of st. Peters, our County staff, to get that approved and recommended to the County Council. If you would like more information about road projects in st.
