M291 North Interchange with US50

Project Description:

This project is the reconstruction of the interchange at M291 North Junction and 50 Highway, including relocation of the north outer road (Blue Parkway), improvements to 7th Terrace and work along US 50 Highway. This project will be competed in a partnership with MoDOT among other entities.

Project Rationale:

This is a project to improve traffic operations and safety of the local and state roadway network along the US 50 Corridor and M-291 Corridor in Lee’s Summit. Current traffic congestion creates significant delays and safety issues that impede travel, detract from the local quality of life and depress property values. This project will also improve opportunities for (re)development, add multi-modal access and replace aging infrastructure. This project is funded, in part, by a City initiated TIF. Additional funds are sought from multiple state partnerships, cost share, excise tax, and sales tax. 

Current Project Status:

An engineering consultant has been selected.  Field surveys and traffic counts are underway.
