The City has budgeted $492,000 to replace deficient concrete slabs on Bent Brook Road in 2023. A similar project took place in Spring Valley Woods in 2022, and another is planned for side streets of Spring Valley in 2027.
Please note that neither the existing nor new concrete is "colored" concrete. While there is some limestone-based concrete around the city, most of the concrete contains Meramec sand and gravel, which provides the orange/brown look. While the new concrete initially appears to be a bright white, over time, the color mellows and the top layer of cement wears off, revealing the brown sand and gravel underneath.
Project Update/ScheduleBids were opened on 2/21, and a contract was awarded to E.Meier Contracting by the Board of Aldermen at their 2/27 meeting. Construction will not begin until at least July, possibly August.
