Preparations Underway for Google Fiber to come to Lee’s Summit

Preparatory utility work began in mid-August, and installation of the Google Fiber network along major roadways should begin early this fall and in residential areas later this fall. A timeline for Google Fiber residential service availability is not yet available, but it is expected to start sometime in 2015.

Once the installation of the fiber network begins, residents can expect to see Google subcontractors working within the City’s right-of-way and utility easements. As is typical with underground utility work of this scale, digging could be required in your area. Residents should receive door-hangers from Google Fiber prior to construction activity beginning in their neighborhoods. Click the read more for FAQ's and important contact numbers.


New Flag at City Facilities

The City raised its newly designed flag for the first time on Thursday, June 12 during National Flag Week. 


The City of Lee’s Summit will receive an Environmental ImpacT Award for its traffic signal synchronization project at 15 intersections along Chipman Road, Blue Parkway and Pryor Road.

In July, the project received the 2010 Kansas City chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (KCITE) Award for “Excellence in Transportation” achievements.

This latest award, in honor of valuable contributions through the use of technology, will be presented on Friday, November 11th, during the Kansas City Business Journal's ImpacT Awards program at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel.

Lee’s Summit’s synchronization project reduced travel time along Chipman Road by 28 to 55 percent, depending on travel direction and time of day, impacting more than 30,000 motorists per day.  This project has helped the City reduce its carbon footprint by reducing vehicle stops and delays that consume fuel and produce harmful emissions released into the environment.

The project cost approximately $400 thousand and was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant with money from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.  The project was managed by Michael Park, City Traffic Engineer, with staff assistance and coordination between the City, the Missouri Department of Transportation, the Department of Energy, and Rhythm Engineering, the innovator and supplier of “InSync” adaptive traffic signal controls.
