General Information

1. Project name: MO - Highway 2 (South Street) Culvert over Muddy Creek Trib.
2. City(ies), County(ies), State: Harrisonville, Cass County, MO
3. Routes, interchanges and/or intersections: Missouri Route 2 1,450 feet east of the intersection with Independence Street
4. Primary project mode: Highway/roadway 
5. Supplementary project mode(s): * Bridge )
Missouri Route 2 is an arterial road connecting residential areas with the commercial and industrial areas of the city. It also serves as a primary transportation route for the area schools including a high pedestrian use. Another factor is a high farm to market utilization. Large produce and livestock vehicles travel this route to area railroad distribution centers such as the Scoular Grain facilities.
6. Project Purpose: * System preservation, rehabilitation or replacement )
7. Project sponsor: Eric Patterson
8. Total budget in 2019 dollars: $1242000
9. Project description: This project will replace a 1930s era single span bridge/culvert with no base. Due to its inadequate capacity it has resulted in flooding of numerous homes and because of its narrow width has resulted in fatal vehicular accidents. The primary users will be vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Automobiles use this arterial route for commutes to work and shop as this is 1 of only 2 east-west routes through the city. It also serves as a major route to schools with the athletic fields and middle school located immediately north of the site. A large number of school children cross Route 2 at this location and the road is too narrow so a separate span bridge is adjacent to the culvert. The culvert under the road is too small and results in frequent flooding of homes upstream, inundation of the road, and flooding of the pedestrian bridge.
10. Scope: The project would have 3 primary intentions: 1. Increase the structures size to at least a 2 cell 12 x 8 reinforced concrete box 2. Widen approximately 500 feet of the road to 36 feet to allow a center turn lane at the school athletic facilities on Eastwood Road. 3. Lengthen the culvert and widen the road section to allow sidewalks and safe crossing facilities that wont be inundated by flooding.
11. Project schedule: 2021 Planning and environmental clearances 2022 Engineering surveys and design 2023 ROW acquisition and utility relocations 2024 Construction

This project would highly benefit both the citizens of Harrisonville and all passing through the area. Safety concerns and flooding effects are items which are always on the minds of all of us and this project would be a good use of resources.

This road is too narrow and the culvert is deteriorating and needs to be replaced. A safer crossing for kids, a road that doesnt flood out to keep highway traffic moving, and an improvement that helps connect the economic areas of the city and county is good.
