Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick hopes to have dirt moving on the Stamper Lane reconstruction project by late summer or early fall. The agreement with Madison County to split the cost will take a portion of the burden off of Godfrey taxpayers. The county will cover 25% of the cost, reducing the amount of money coming out of the village's capital funds.
The planned project includes the storm sewers, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and repaving. McCormick says the cost to the village will be in the neighborhood of $200,000.
As far as impact to the traffic flow, Glazebrook Park will only be accessible from Pierce Lane, and Camelot Subdivision will be down to one entrance, with access coming from Godfrey Road. McCormick thinks construction should begin by late August or early September, as utilities need to be moved before the contractor can begin the project.
