Project Manager(s):

Scott Ward
816-969-1800

Estimated Construction Dates:

Mar 14, 2019 - Jun 30, 2020

Project Status

In Design

Projected Funding:

$3,900,000

Project Description:

This project will construct turn lanes and a traffic signal at the intersection of Murray Road and 3rd Street. The project also includes widening of 3rd Street east of Pryor Road to Murray Road to complete the 4/5 lane section with sidewalk on each side of the road.

Project Rationale:

This project will enhance safety and operations by improving the 3rd Street corridor and the intersection of 3rd Street and Murray Road. Traffic signal warrants have been previously met at the intersection of 3rd Street and Murray which currently operates as an all-way stop. Left-turn lanes are necessary at this intersection for improved safety and operation in consideration of anticipated traffic growth within the next 10 years. Left-turn lanes at this intersection are needed for efficient traffic management under signal control. Widening of 3rd Street to a four or five lane section consistent with the design of 3rd Street west of Pryor Road and 3rd Street east of Murray Road is recommended in the Thoroughfare Master Plan to address current and projected traffic demand at an adequate level of service. Sidewalk connections should be provided for pedestrian access along the corridor. 3rd Street is a major arterial road.

Current Project Status:

The preliminary plan (showing alignment, lane configuration, new turn lanes and proposed median) is complete. The plan also shows the proposed sidewalk, street lights and traffic signal at 3rd and Murray. An open house, public meeting was held on Dec 18th, 2017. 2018 will largely revolve around three activities. Detailed design work will continue on the roadway improvement plans, utility relocation work (KCPL, AT&T) should begin and residents will be contacted regarding property impacts or any requests for easement or right-of-way.

Estimated Construction Dates:

Jun 01, 2015 - Nov 30, 2017

Project Status

In Construction

Projected Funding:

$23,000,000

Project Description:

Extension of Blackwell Road across 50 Highway, having a diamond interchange. Extension of Blue Parkway from Church Street to Blackwell Road with some reconstruction of Shenandoah Drive and the construction of Oldham Parkway from Blackwell Road to Smart Road. This project will be fully funded by the East 50 HWY TIF and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) through an approved Cost Share Agreement. This project is jointly managed by City of Lee's Summit and MoDOT. A separate project administered by MoDOT concurrent with the interchange project at Blackwell and US 50 Highway will provide an extension of Blue Parkway from Blackwell Road to 7 Highway and an extension of Oldham Parkway from Smart Road to 7 Highway. MoDOT should be contacted at 816-622-6500 with any questions related to the outer road improvements between Blackwell Road and 7 Highway.

Project Rationale:

Traffic conditions at the interchange of Todd George Parkway and 50 Highway will not accomodate the immediate and projected growth of surrounding development without Blackwell Interchange. Improvements to Todd George Parkway interchange are planned, but cannot mitigate the traffic congestion without alternate access to 50 Highway in eastern Lee's Summit. Blackwell interchange has been planned for over 40 years. Blackwell interchange will relieve some of the congestion at Todd George Parkway and surrounding streets, provide better access to eastern Lee's Summit, encourage economic development and meet the City's long range traffic demand.

Current Project Status:

The project is substantially completed and all roadways are open to traffic. Remaining final completion items include landscape work, clean-up, construction defect corrections, etc. that may be seasonally influenced and will likely be done in the spring of 2018. For more information on construction and construction updates, please contact MoDOT at 816-622-6500 or visit the project website at:http://www.modot.org/kansascity/major_projects/Route_50_Blackwell.htm

Project Status

Future

Projected Funding:

$10,414,000

Project Description:

This project is one of six projects funded by the 2007 1/2 cent sales tax renewal. This project will reconstruct the roadway as a 3-lane facility and acquire right-of-way for ultimate divided 4-lane facility with turn lanes. The existing one-lane RR tunnel will be removed, and widened to support two-way traffic. The project will not be constructed until the Union Pacific right-of-way is acquired by the city.

Project Rationale:

SAFETY: This project will improve safety by leveling the roadway and improving sight distance. The right of way component will preserve right of way for future capacity improvements.

Current Project Status:

The old railroad corridor has been acquired from the Union Pacific Railroad, and Jackson County is the controlling authority. The City cannot complete the design of the Chipman Road improvements until the details concerning the future use of the corridor are resolved. Jackson County is meeting with all relevant agencies in order to develop the requirements. Wilson and Company of Kansas City, MO began the conceptual study, design and survey work in July 2010. The Concept Phase studied the costs and impacts of several horizontal and vertical alignments. The Concept Phase Alignment report and Traffic Study were completed in January 2011. A public meeting was held on February 8, 2011 and the alignment options that were investigated were presented as well as the recommended alignment. The preliminary design began in May, 2011. Wilson completed preliminary design in October, 2011 and and completed the right-of-way plans, tract maps and legal descriptions in early 2012. Land acquisition, for easements and right-of-way, is on hold pending the decisions from Jackson County regarding the trail. Plans are approximately 90% complete, and the 90% Marking and Signing Plans are included below. Once Jackson County signs the agreement with the City, the project will be restarted with a few additions. One addition to the design is a sidewalk will be added to the south side of Chipman Rd. The second addition to the design will be an upsized water main running from Chipman Rd. south to The Village at View High along the east side of View High.

Estimated Construction Dates:

Jan 01, 2019 - Jun 01, 2019

Project Status

In Design

Projected Funding:

$1,000

Project Description:

NE BRISTOL DRIVE The project will improve the unnamed stream running under NE Bristol Drive near NE Concord Street. Recently, the centerline of the stream has begun to shift southward upstream of the crossing at NE Bristol Drive, causing the existing culvert wing wall to collapse. A temporary wing wall will be installed to protect the exposed roadway embankment, but the long term solution will require more significant work upstream. This project is intended to improve the stream running under Bristol Drive in such a way as to assure the long term integrity of Bristol Drive by protecting it from any undercutting or other degradation resulting from stream flows. As an added benefit, the work will also stabilize streambank erosion that is affecting a nearby house. NE DOUGLAS STREET Severe erosion along approximately 150 feet of NE Douglas Street is threatening to undermine the roadway leading into Lee's Summit Municipal Airport. With this project, a stormwater conveyance system that will ensure the continued stability of the road pavement while conveying stormwater flows originating from the airport is required. Minor stream improvements to the receiving stream west of NE Douglas Street may also be required. 2612 NE Douglas Street is the nearest address. SE 2ND STREET The stream which runs along the north side of SE 2nd Street, approximately 250 feet west of SE Independence Avenue is meandering towards 2nd Street, threatening the sidewalk and roadway. Streambank stabilization efforts are needed to protect 2nd street and the adjacent sidewalk. SW 3RD STREET This project will determine the best method to stabilize a slope on the north side of 3rd Street that is failing and endangering existing infrastructure. A global slope failure at this location would close 3rd Street between SW Winterpark Blvd. and SW Forrestpark Blvd. A box culvert is located beneath the roadway at this location, and the culvert is being undermined and stormwater is eroding the base of the slope. Work may include reconstructing the slope, erosion protection along the slope, stabilizing the culvert foundation, extension of the box culvert, and Corps of Engineer permitting.

Project Rationale:

Proposed improvements will provide long-term protection for the roadways near streams by improving slope stability and streambank stability.

Current Project Status:

Consultant contract approved on February 28, 2018.
