Pryor Road - Hook Rd to Longview Rd

Project Description:
This project is the first of two phases to complete committed improvements to Pryor Road from M-150 Highway to Longview Road. This first phase project will widen Pryor Road as a four lane facility with turn lanes, sidewalk, shared-use path, curb, and street lighting from Hook Road to Longview Road. The project will also include permanent traffic signal installations at the Hook Road and Scherer Road intersections along Pryor Road, with interconnect to the traffic signal at Longview. The permanent traffic signals may be preceded by temporary traffic signals.

Project Rationale:
This project supports improved safety, operations, community growth in southwest Lee's Summit, and livability. The project is identified in the Thoroughfare Master Plan. The path is also included in the Greenway Master Plan and Bicycle Transportation Plan. Pryor Road has already been improved from Longview Road to Interstate 470 and provides a major arterial route between I-470 and M-150 Highway. Increased traffic demand and use by cyclists and pedestrians along this corridor is cause for its forthcoming capacity issues and impediment to further adjacent development.

Current Project Status:
TranSystems is design engineer.  Mid America Regional Council recently voted to recommend a $3.93M federal grant for Pryor Road.  Preliminary plans were completed in May.
