Lee's Summit Public Works

From pothole patching in spring, to snow plowing in winter, Public Works provides many of the City's essential programs and services. If you've driven on a City street, used a bike lane, taken trash to the landfill, or watched a plane fly overhead, then you've encountered Public Works.

Public Works is responsible for:

  • planning, design, and construction of the City's infrastructure
  • operation and maintenance of the City's stormwater systems, streets and traffic control network
  • oversight, compliance and post-closure of the City's landfill
  • operation of the Lee's Summit Municipal Airport


  • Pavement Management Programs

    Navigating Diverging Diamonds and Roundabouts

    Roundabouts can be found throughout Lee's Summit, and now the City has its first diverging diamond interchange at Route 291 South & US Hwy 50. How should drivers navigate these new features? The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) provides resources, including videos, on navigating diverging diamonds and roundabouts.
