Welcome to the new City of Lee’s Summit website

We’ve been working on this for a while with our citizens and City staff to design a website to serve your needs. We can’t wait for you to take a look around!

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.

The Lee's Summit Public Works Department 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


  • Annual Pavement Management Programs Underway

    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.
