Fourth Street Improvement Project Design

Maryville, MO – The City of Maryville and Northwest Missouri State University are moving forward on a joint partnership to begin engineering and design of the Fourth Street Improvement Project. The project seeks to improve the corridor along West Fourth Street from Main Street west to the University entrance near North Dunn Street.

After formalizing the partnership, the City of Maryville proceeded to request qualifications from interested engineering firms. A total of five (5) proposals were received by the deadline and reviewed by a mixed panel of City and University staff. The panel selected SK Design Group, Inc. of Overland Park, KS as the most qualified to perform the requested services. The City Council reaffirmed and approved the engineering contract with SK Design Group, Inc. at its regular meeting on Monday.

The project scope and conceptual drawings provided by SK Design Group, Inc. include the design of the following construction features; an eight (8) foot shared concrete bicycle/pedestrian path along the north side, a five (5) foot concrete sidewalk along the south side, replacing numerous deteriorated curb and gutter sections, new ADA compliant ramps and detectable warning strips at crosswalks, decorative historic black streetlight poles with acorn fixtures, sections of stamped colored concrete, new modular block retaining walls and handrails, proper utility adjustments, landscaping, extension of the State of Missouri Arboretum located on the university campus, asphalt mill and overlay of Fourth Street, a “T” intersection at Dunn Street to improve vehicular and pedestrian safety, place-making overhead signal and truss at the intersection of Fourth and Main, benches, trash receptacles, and public art. Engineering of the corridor improvements is anticipated to be complete by May of 2013.
