Webb City to apply for second roundabout

Proposed $3.5M project includes widening of East Street from the highway to the second roundabout at Daugherty Street

A second Webb City roundabout?

Webb City is applying for a grant to widen East Street north from the city’s first roundabout to a proposed second one at East Daugherty Street.

The City Council on Monday approved the application submission, as recommended by City Administrator Carl Francis.

Francis said the widening of East Street and new roundabout would cost an estimated $3.25 million. 

That section of East Street passes between Atwoods, Sleep Inn and Flat Creek Restaurant.

At East and Daugherty streets, traffic is controlled by a hanging light system.

The grant opportunity is from the Governor’s Transportation Cost Share Program.

Two more grant applications were approved by the council. One is the previously discussed sidewalk along East Street from the roundabout to connect with the existing sidewalk on Daugherty Street. 

Francis said 80% of the estimated the cost of $325,000 would be covered by the Missouri Department of Transportation. The same program has helped the city construct sidewalks on North Madison Street, North Main Street and Stadium Drive.

The second application is for a two-year assessment of the road condition of all 71 miles of paved roadways within the city. Francis said the total cost over two years is $70,000. The city is applying to receive $12,000 from MoDOT the first year, and then it will reapply for $12,000 the second year.

Also, the council approved Police Chief Don Melton’s request to purchase training pistols and rifles for officers to practice active shooter response, clearing buildings and making traffic stops.

Umarex submitted the winning bid of $7,048.

Mayor Lynn Ragsdale’s appointment of Jessica Taylor to the Park Board was approved.

Resignations were accepted from:

– Gary White, a member of the park board and Center Creek 201 Board.

– Bri Newby, a park board member.
