Public Meeting for Colbern Road Improvements Set for March 31
The City of Lee’s Summit will introduce the preliminary design for the Colbern Road improvements at a public meeting on March 31 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Unity Village Banquet and Dining Building, 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, Mo.
City staff and representatives from Garver, the design engineering firm, will be in attendance to answer questions. There will be no formal presentation, and residents can come and go as schedules allow. Exhibits detailing the proposed work will be on display.
The improvements will be made to Colbern Road from M350 Highway to Douglas Street and will include rebuilding the road and adding turn lanes, street lighting, a sidewalk and a shared-use path. The bridge over the railroad and Little Cedar Creek will also be replaced. The purpose of the project is to improve safety, operations, livability and increase economic investment.
The project is funded by the Capital Improvement Sales Tax, which was renewed by voters in 2017; Federal Surface Transportation Program; and Governor’s Transportation Cost Share. The project is currently in the preliminary design phase with construction tentatively scheduled to begin in 2021.
