Property acquisition is complete, utility relocations are underway and construction is anticipated to begin in at the start of 2017. The project is expected to be complete in December 2017.
155th Street runs west to east from the Centerpoint development at the former Richards Gebaur Airport to Ward Road in Lee’s Summit. With the Missouri Department of Transportation converting 71 Highway to Interstate 49 and potential development, 155th Street is projected to have large increases in traffic in the coming years and is a natural route for traffic to access the interstate.
Belton has worked with Grandview to secure Surface Transportation Funding (STP) through the Mid-America Regional Council. STP funds would pay for 80% of the project construction costs, with the remaining costs to be split between Belton and Grandview.
