General Information

1. Project name: Noland Road Complete Streets
2. City(ies), County(ies), State: Independence,Jackson County, Missouri
3. Routes, interchanges and/or intersections: 24 Hwy, College St, Truman Rd, Walnut, E. 23rd Street,E. Gudgell Ave., E. 35th Street, 39th Street, Lynn Court, Interstate 70 Hwy, 44th Street, 40 Hwy
4. Primary project mode: Active Transportation 
5. Supplementary project mode(s): * Freight * Highway/Roadway * Transit )
Currently Noland Road primarily serves motorized vehicles and does not have a continuous network of dedicated facilities for pedestrian, bicycle or mobility aid users. By providing continuous ADA compliant sidewalks and ramps, incorporating dedicated bicycle facilities and improving transit facilities a network of transportation facilities will be provided that support the Citys initiative to create a revitalized commercial district by increasing vibrancy, promoting quality development, and achieving accessibility while maintaining and enhancing vehicular traffic movements.
6. Project Purpose: * System expansion (added capacity) * System preservation, rehabilitation or replacement )
7. Project sponsor: Kati Horner Gonzalez, P.E. City Engineer
8. Total budget in 2019 dollars: $20500000
9. Project description: In an effort to promote Economic Vitality, increase vibrancy and promote quality development, this project would provide new ADA compliant sidewalks and ramps, push button pedestrian signals, dedicated bike lanes and transit stops improvements. The intent is to provide a multi-modal transportation network that encourages multi-modal use (motor vehicle, pedestrian, transit, bicyclists), provides connections to current bus transit routes and allows for the safe and efficient movement of people. The project will convert existing, dual continuous left-turn lanes to a single two-way left turn lane and utilize the remaining right-of-way to implement dedicated bike facilities along the length of the corridor.
10. Scope: The Primary travel modes that will be served are motor vehicle, freight, bicycle, pedestrian and transit users. The ultimate build-out project limits are from 24 Hwy to 40 Hwy. The project will be phased between commercial nodes as identified in the Noland Road Development Plan Document. The number of traffic lanes will be reduced and/or modified as required to provide a continuous single left turn lane and dedicated on-street bicycle facilities. In addition, the project will include constructing ADA compliant sidewalks and ramps, curb & gutter, Traffic and push button pedestrian signals, street lighting improvements, storm drainage improvements, retaining walls (where applicable)and street trees. The proposed project will also include transit stop improvements and will provide connections to existing sidewalks and bicycle facilities that exist at minor street intersections along the corridor. Traffic signal system upgrades (battery back-up, pre-emptive signals etc.)and supporting traffic control signage are planned to ensure safe functional and operational coordination with Railroad Crossings throughout the project reach. Ultimately the desire is to transform the corridor into a safe balanced multi-modal system that provides transportation options and ensures equity for all users.
11. Project schedule: The goal is a complete build-out having a phased North to South progression from 23rd Street to 40 Hwy by 2030. The initial phase could potentially be implemented in 2021. Additional phases to the north (23rd Street to Truman and Truman to 24 Hwy) will be constructed by 2040.
