Centering Funding to Drive Implementation

St. Louis County DOT
Cities of Dellwood and Ferguson, MO

The West Florissant Avenue Great Streets Project includes a holistic set of transportation improvements designed to address safety challenges for the 30,000 vehicles and over 1,000 pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users who access the corridor daily, while at the same time, advancing equity, enhancing mobility, and revitalizing the economic development environment along the West Florissant Avenue corridor in North St. Louis County.

Securing outside funding was critical to taking this project beyond just a plan. With an eye toward ultimate implementation, CMT supported the client through the identification, pursuit, and procurement of vital funding resources. This included a lead role in preparing the successful application for USDOT’s Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program. The client was awarded $18.2 million through the program.
