Schroeder Creek Boulevard Extension Project
Designer: Horner and Shifrin, Inc.
Right of Way: City of Wentzville Acquired
Construction: Karrenbrock Construction (St. Charles County Based)
Inspection and Testing: City of Wentzville/ Cochran Engineering (Wentzville Based)
Project Description: This project will extend Schroeder Creek Boulevard south from its current terminus adjacent to the City’s Law Enforcement Center near Wentzville Parkway to West Pearce Boulevard just west of Campus Drive. Additionally, there will be a pair of roundabouts constructed allowing tie-in of William Dierberg Drive from its existing terminus just east of Heartland Park at the north roundabout. The second round about will connect Holt High School’s western parking area to the new roadway allowing flow directly from the parking lot onto the roadway. Finally a second school entrance will be constructed near Wentzville Administration Building to allow access directly from Schroeder Creek Boulevard directly to Wentzville Middle.
In addition to the roadway additions will be a signalized intersection at West Pearce Boulevard which will accommodate both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. On the west side of the new roadway a 10’ multipurpose trail will be constructed to allow pedestrian access along the corridor, and along the east side a 6’ sidewalk will be installed to allow pedestrian access between the Holt High, Wentzville Middle, and Heartland Park. Pedestrian crossings will be installed at each roundabout to allow for future access between the trail and the sidewalk.
The intent of this project is to provide additional north-south connectivity to help alleviate traffic and congestion along Wentzville Parkway and improve access to Wentzville Schools and Heartland Park.
