A sidewalk project tops the new business section of the agenda for the Osage Beach Board of Aldermen meeting scheduled for Thursday night. The board’s expected to vote on first reading of a request to execute a contract for engineering for sidewalks running from the Barry Prewitt intersection across the Route 54 bridge near Mace Road. It’s phase 5 of an ongoing sidewalk improvement project. The estimated cost is just under $83,000. $40,000 will be contributed by the Osage Beach Special Road District. The project would require MoDot approval since they own the bridge over 54. Thursday’s meeting begins at 6pm in city hall.
