An Intergovernmental Cooperative Agreement has been approved between the city of Dardenne Prairie and the city of O’Fallon for Bryan Road turn lane improvements and Waterford Crossing Storm Water improvements.

Dardenne Prairie initiated a project that will include the installation of public storm sewers and piping starting in the residential subdivision known at the Villages of Dardenne Prairie Plat 3 in the city of O’Fallon and ending in the residential subdivision, Waterford Crossing Plat 3 in Dardenne Prairie. Improvements will help the flow of storm water within the two cities.
Through this agreement, Dardenne Prairie will contribute up to $25,000 toward the cost of the Bryan Road project and O’Fallon will contribute $12,000 toward the cost of the Waterford Crossing Storm Water.
