To provide a context-sensitive design, the project includes a shared use path for bicyclists rather than bicycle lane due to the residential nature of the surrounding area and increasing traffic volumes.

9. Project description: The City of Blue Springs is experiencing residential growth eastward along the Highway AA corridor from US-40 to the city limits. Significant development in the adjacent City of Grain Valley, which grew nearly 150 percent from 2000 to 2010, has also caused congestion issues on the rural, two-lane roadway. The project will improve the existing corridor from Sunnyside School Road to the city limits (east of Scenic Drive) to a three-lane roadway with a center turn lane and right turn lanes as warranted. The improvements will include a shared use path on one side of the roadway and a sidewalk on the other side of the roadway to accommodate bicyclists, pedestrians and mobility aid users. Intersection improvements at Adams Dairy Parkway, a major north-south roadway, are also planned. The project will extend the corridor improvements that were recently constructed from US-40 to Sunnyside School Road and are associated with a new multi-family development along Highway AA.
