Proposition P Information

 

PropPProjectsSt. Peters voters approved a Proposition P ballot measure on Aug. 7, 2012, by more than two-thirds of the vote (68.1%) to tackle critical stormwater management projects and make improvements to our extensive parks and trails system. In January 2013, the City of St. Peters began collecting an extra 4-tenths of a cent parks and stormwater sales tax (for 1/2-cent total).

 

Each Prop P stormwater project uses green infrastructure to address flooding issues, improve water quality and create a more sustainable, natural environment in the project areas. Each parks project funded by Prop P helps add to the amazing quality of life in St. Peters that has gained national recognition for our community as one of the best places to live. Prop P funding also covers the costs to maintain our stormwater projects and our nearly 1,300 acres of parkland and parks facilities.

 

See below for updates on our Prop P promises to improve stormwater and parks in St. Peters.

East Jungermann Pipe Lining (P-23)

Engineer: Geosyntech
Contractor: Vee-Jay Cement Contracting Company
Construction Cost: $549,107
The project consists of the repair and rehabilitation of an existing large diameter storm sewer pipe on the east side of Jungermann Road, from Boone Hills Drive to Brentmoor Lane. This stormwater improvement will repair approximately 800 lineal feet of existing 84” & 96” diameter pipe using centrifugally cast concrete pipe liner (which repairs the pipe in place, by lining/coating the inside the pipe). There will be limited excavation work to remove an existing section of an 84-inch diameter storm sewer located partially under Gailwood Drive. This section of the existing pipe will be removed and replaced. In addition, the crosswalk pavement and sidewalk ramps at the intersection of Gailwood Drive and Jungermann Road will be improved to meet ADA requirements.

July 2018 Update: Expected completion during Summer 2018.

Jungermann Road Stream Channel and Trail Improvements (P-28)
Engineer: H.R. Green
Contractor: Gershenson
Construction Cost: $927,351
The purpose of the project is to reduce the frequency of roadway flash flooding and provide improved sidewalk and trail connections. The P-28 stream channel and trail improvements are being constructed in conjunction with the replacement of two bridges and reconstruction of portions of Jungermann Road, from Barkwood Trails Drive to just south of Margaret Brown Court. The improvements will include the removal and replacement of two deficient box culverts, reconstruction of portions of Jungermann Road to raise the road profile, replacement and upgrade of the Country Creek traffic signal. The P-28 stream and trail improvements will relocate an existing stream away from an existing retaining wall supporting Jungermann Road and allowing the stream channel to have a more natural and stable section. The stream relocation will allow for the construction of an 11-foot wide trail along the east side of Jungermann Road, replacing an existing 5-foot wide sidewalk. The P-28 project will also construct a trail connection under the new Jungermann Road Bridge, located just south of Country Creek Drive. This trail connection will provide an uninterrupted trail connection similar to the Spencer Creek Trail crossing at Willott Road and Great Rivers Greenway trail crossing under Mexico Road at West Sunny Hills Blvd.

July 2018 Update: Under construction. Completion scheduled for March 2019.
