Frontenac Engineering provided the civil engineering design for the pedestrian plaza that creates a gateway into the south side of Lemay in south St. Louis at the intersection of S. Broadway and Ripa Ave.
Lemay Plaza includes entry monument with benches and signage that builds an attractive urban space that shapes connections between two area schools. It boasts a curvilinear limestone landscape wall topped with sinker Cyprus form seating and a backdrop as well as a custom bus shelter and bicycle racks. Porous pavers formed the plaza surface and landscaped rain gardens enhanced stormwater management. The coordination involved the State Highway Dept, County Highway Dept and MSD.
