Project Manager(s):

Michael Park
816-969-1800

Estimated Construction Dates:

Jun 01, 2015 - Jun 01, 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:

Design is complete, all property acquired, permits and environmental clearances approved and conflicting utilities relocated. The interchange has been designed with roundabout traffic control where the ramps intersect with Blackwell Road and at the intersection of Blackwell Road and Blue Parkway/Shenandoah Drive. Construction began in July 2015 and will be managed by MoDOT. Construction should be complete in 2017. In addition to this project, MoDOT will extend the north and south outer roads from Blackwell Interchange to the interchange at 7 Highway and US 50 Highway at the same time. 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

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. Before the City's design can be completed, the exact uses of the corridor (whether a bikepath or perhaps light rail) needs to be determined. 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 until the railroad right-of-way issue is resolved. Plans are 90% completed. The 90% Marking and Signing Plans are included below.

Project Status

Annual Program

Projected Funding:

$8,317,000,000

Project Description:

In accordance with the City Council adopted Airport Business Plan, this project includes the earthwork for the 100 foot wide extension of the existing Runway 18-36 from 4,014 feet to 5,300 feet and for the extension of the west parallel taxiway.

Project Rationale:

Extension of the runway will allow operations of a greater variety of business class aircraft under a greater range of weather conditions. This project will serve to improve the airport and allow more corporate jets to use the facility. These improvements should increase the economic value of the airport to the city. In addition the existing west parallel taxiway is located at 225 feet from Runway 18-36, which is less than the standard separation for a Class C airport. The taxiway is to be relocated to 400 feet from Runway 18-36, which meets the Class C standard.

Current Project Status:

Crawford, Murphy and Tilly (CMT) began the design in May, 2011. Environmental permits have been completed. The design is approximately 90% complete and construction should begin in Fall 2015 if FAA Grants are in place to fund the project. A smaller project, a portion of this larger project, was constructed in 2013/2014 since MoDOT could not fund the larger project.

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. Construction is anticipated to begin next year after Lee's Summit Road improvements have been completed to avoid detours.
