Village Board Delays Appeal for Wesley Road Repairs

The Creve Coeur Village Board will not immediately appeal the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s denial of funds to repair the riprap along Wesley Road, choosing instead to weigh all the options first.

Village officials had hoped to get the riprap repair — which is estimated to cost more than $120,000 — done before the guardrail project, because the presence of the guardrail would make the riprap repair work more difficult, and probably more expensive.

For now the village is going to go ahead with the guardrail project, Peak said, and let it out for bids in June — with a likely installation date in July or August. That gives the Village Board time to weigh its options and look at alternative plans to address the riprap that was damaged by the record flooding in the spring of 2013.
