2. City(ies), County(ies), State: The City Of Independence, Jackson County, Missouri with MODOT involvement at 24 Hwy/Winner Rd and M-12 Hwy/Truman Rd.
3. Routes, interchanges and/or intersections: The Winner Road Improvement project would be a three lane minor arterial with bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides. It would start at Winner/M-24 Highway then head south through Truman Road/M-12 Highway, then head south and east through the Englewood Art/Business District to Sterling Ave.
4. Primary project mode: Active Transportation 
5. Supplementary project mode(s): * Active Transportation * Freight * Highway/Roadway * Transit )
The “Winner Road, 24 Hwy to Sterling” project supports various policy goals outlined in the “Transportation Outlook 2040”. This project emphasizes a Complete Street design to improve both vehicular and non-motorized mobility for all area residents. Brookside, Fairmount, Mount Washington, Van Horn High School, Maywood, and Englewood Art/Business areas will be better connected. This project supports place making goals and supports Creating Quality Places by creating linkage to the 12th Street/Truman Road Corridor, a proposed MetroGreen Greenway and promoting pedestrian/bicycle friendly access and incorporating natural elements to the design. It supports public health and air quality by improving walkability, greenscaping, and the use of non-motorized modes of transportation and better access to the transit stops throughout the route.
6. Project Purpose: * System preservation, rehabilitation or replacement * System operations and management * Ecosystem Restoration * Other (Modification needed around High School)

9. Project description: Winner Rd would be primarily a motorist/transit route but with a high school that needs modifications for pedestrian, bicycle and bus use. Safety and better functionality would be the ultimate goals. The “Winner Road, 24 Hwy to Sterling” project supports various policy goals outlined in the “Transportation Outlook 2040”. This project emphasizes a Complete Street design to improve both vehicular and non-motorized mobility for all area residents. Building a Complete Street will improve walkability by replacing a beaten path where no sidewalks exist between 24 Hwy and Van Horn High School. It will connect the Brookside, Fairmount, Mount Washington, Van Horn High School, Maywood, and Englewood Art/Business areas with a safer three lane minor arterial with sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides. It will complete a sidewalk loop trail from Sterling Avenue along Winner Road to 24 Hwy then east to Sterling Avenue then south back to Winner Road. This complete street project will better connect residents to the Transit stops at 24 Hwy and Truman Rd (M-12)with additional stops along Winner Rd. to Sterling Ave. This project supports place making goals and supports Creating Quality Places by creating linkage to the 12th Street/Truman Road Corridor, a proposed MetroGreen Greenway and promoting pedestrian/bicycle friendly access and incorporating natural elements to the design. It supports public health through improved air quality, walk-ability, greenscaping and the use of non motorized modes of transportation. It also accesses public transit hubs. In places, people are walking in or next to the street at grade with no sidewalk or curb. The improved sidewalks and bike lanes will provide separation between the motor vehicles and bikes and pedestrians. This project will place crosswalks and new pedestrian signals at signalized intersections. Safety will be significantly improved for all users and it will optimize traffic flow for the traveling public and freight.
10. Scope: The Winner Rd. Improvement project is approximately 1.8 miles long and will incorporate two through lanes with a center turn lane for enhanced functionality. There will be bike lanes on both sides and a 5 foot sidewalk on each side set back from the road. Because this was an old trolley route there is ample right of way width for most of the route. Parts of the right of way now have walking paths that are eroding from lack of curbs and sidewalks. New storm sewers with the curbs and sidewalks and greenscaping will greatly improve these areas. New pedestrian signals and crosswalks and signage will be incorporated throughout the project. There will need to be some storm sewer improvements and there is a bridge at 16th and Home Ave over the Railroad that may need resurfacing or deck replacement. This project will then be tied into existing sidewalk and revitalization projects in the Englewood Art District at the east end with a new intersection at Northern Blvd.
11. Project schedule: Phase 1 would be Truman/M-12 and Winner Road by 2030. Phase 2 would be Northern Blvd. to Truman Road by 2040. Phase 3 would be Northern Blvd. to Sterling Ave. by 2040. Phase 4 would be Truman/M-12 to M-24 Hwy by 2050. These could change depending on partner time tables and funding.
