Lee's Summit, MO

Blackwell Interchange at 50 HWY

Last Updated

Project Manager(s):

Michael Park
816-969-1800

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:

In construction. Partially open to traffic. 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.

Project Description:

Currently, Gateway Drive dead ends approximately 800 feet SW of NE Georgian Drive. This project will extend Gateway Drive approximately 850 feet to the south and will tie into Delta School Road at the existing cul-de-sac. The northern portion of the project is approximately 225 feet of open field. For the southern portion of the project, there is an existing driveway that runs along the anticipated alignment for approximately 625 feet. It will be necessary to fill in the 225 foot gap and remove all existing pavement that runs to the south. Surveying design work will include easement document preparation and property tract map exhibits. Street design work will include horizontal/vertical design, retaining wall designs and details, enclosed stormwater systems, sidewalks, signage, and pavement markings. Utility design work will include water main relocation and utility coordination.

Project Rationale:

The primary purpose for this project is to address existing traffic issues and to provide improved access for existing neighborhoods.

Estimated Construction Dates:

Jun 01, 2018 - Sep 30, 2018

Project Status

In Design

Projected Funding:

$700,000

Project Description:

This project involves intersection reconfiguration at Independence Avenue and Town Centre Blvd, which is intended to direct thru-traffic along Town Centre Blvd rather than along Independence, to and from Colbern Road. A complimentary project is the installation of a traffic signal at Colbern and Town Centre along with turn lanes and a raised median on Colbern. The raised median will limit access to Independence from Colbern.

Project Rationale:

The intersection reconfiguration should direct the thru traffic to the proposed traffic signal at Town Centre Blvd and Colbern Road. A traffic signal at the intersection of Town Centre Blvd and Colbern Road, with turn lanes and access restrictions along Colbern Road at Independence, is warranted to increase safety and facilitate adjacent development.

Current Project Status:

Design is 70% complete. The right-of-way and easement acquisition has been completed.

Jan 12, 2015 - Nov 20, 2015

Project Status

In Construction

Projected Funding:

$1,262,000

Project Description:

This sanitary sewer improvement project consists of the expansion of the existing Excess Flow Holding Basin capacity from 1.4 MG to 7.4 MG.

Project Rationale:

This project will increase the wet weather capacity at the existing basin and reduce the potential of overflows due to future development in the watershed.

Current Project Status:

Phase 1 and 2 of the project are underway. Phase 1 is relocating the existing East Fork Little Blue River which includes excavation, phase 2 is the establishment of grasses ans trees as erosion protection (part of the Corps of Engineers requirements) before the East Fork Little Blue River flow is changed. Phase 1 & 2 work is complete. By contract Phases 3 & 4 will begin about mid-August, after erosion protection measures (planting) are established and growing. Contractor is doing annual maintenance to the stream as required by the Corps of Engineers.

Estimated Construction Dates:

Feb 05, 2018 - Nov 02, 2018

Project Status

In Design

Projected Funding:

$1,600,000

Project Description:

This sanitary sewer improvement project consists of the construction of 3,100 LF of sanitary sewer lines ranging in pipe size from 15-inches to 18-inches in diameter on the lower segments of the Cedar Creek Interceptor Subbasins CC-03 and CC-04.

Project Rationale:

The existing lines do not have capacity to convey the predicted peak wet weather sanitary sewer flows nor meet the future needs of development. The condition of the existing pipe system is also a concern. There has been at least one documented overflow in these subbasins.

Current Project Status:

The base survey has been completed, the new line alignment study is underway to determine the least disruptive and most cost effective route. Access easements are also being considered. Performed alignment walk on 9/28/17. Minor adjustments were made to the alignment and final design has started.

Project Description:

This project is the installation of a permanent signal at Woods Chapel Road and Channel Drive.

Project Rationale:

The existing intersection meets standard traffic signal warrant criteria. Planned lane configuration changes with routine pavement maintence will provide for left-turn lanes accomodating more efficient signal operations at the intersection. The warranted traffic signal will improve safety and intersection operations. The signal should be interconnected with adjacent traffic signals for corridor operations coordination.

Current Project Status:

Currently in Design
