General Information

1. Project name: 211th Street East from School Road (North) to J Hwy
2. City(ies), County(ies), State: Peculiar and Cass County Missouri
3. Routes, interchanges and/or intersections: Beginning with I-49 & Peculiar Way interchange to the west, the 211th Street corridor connecting School Road (north), and improving the existing 211th Street from School Road to MO Hwy J from two lanes to three lanes. The City’s 2008 Comprehensive Plan identified 211th Street as a secondary transportation priority. Peculiar’s 2015 Comprehensive Plan update identified the 211th Street Corridor as an important capital improvement, currently crossing a large tract of undeveloped land. With the I-49/Peculiar Way interchange completed, the 211th Street Corridor is one of the City’s top transportation priorities. This project is the next step following the “211th Street Corridor Study”, presented in 2011, which developed Corridor alignment options and recommended the option the City is pursuing with this project. The development potential along the Corridor is limitless. The City uses sound planning practices and is creating a well-developed vision for the Corridor prior to development.
4. Primary project mode: Highway/roadway 
5. Supplementary project mode(s): * Active Transportation * Bridge * Freight * Highway/Roadway * Transit )
Highway: 211th Street from School Road will provide interconnectivity between I-49 and Route Route J. Peculiar Way will serve several devolpments in the area and provide relief for existing traffic problems in the center of the City. Transit: A principal user of 211th Street will be the Raymore-Peculiar School District, which has a sprawling campus along and north of 211th Street. Bike: 211th Street will be equipped with a bike route promoting non-vechical traffic to and from a new commercial center, local neighborhoods, and the School District campus. The lack of a bike route from School Road to Route J is a major barrier to non-motorozied travel and the proejct will provide a bike route/roadway mitigating this barrier. Pedestrian: 211th Street will allow for pedestrian traffic within the 211th Street corridor. As with other modes of transportation, interconnected and shorter, safer routes will be provided.
6. Project Purpose: * System expansion (added capacity) )
7. Project sponsor: Carl M. Brooks, PE, CFM
8. Total budget in 2019 dollars: $2500000
9. Project description: The 211th Street (East) Street project is proposed in conjunction with the completed new interchange at Peculiar Way & I-49 (formerly known as 211th Street and U.S. 71 Highway); and in conjunction with Peculiar Way (West) from Peculiar Drive to Y Hwy. The Peculiar Way (West) project will be a separate Regional Transportation 2050 project submission. Peculiar’s future land-use plan calls for this area to be the City’s future commercial center. 211th Street will be a primary traffic mover through this center, and will serve as one segment of a major collector road linking the City with cities and counties to the east and west. The current condition of the project’s 1.0 mile has two lanes of asphalt paving, with a 22 to 23-foot cross-section, with no curbs or gutters, from School Road (North) to J Highway, and a right-of-way of 60 feet. This is a project request so the repairs/upgrades will take place during the construction phase. When completed, the 211th Street Corridor will be a major collector Complete Street, with a standard three-lane road, with one travel lane in each direction, and accommodate left-turn movements with a center TWLTL, with shoulders, for approximately 1.0 mile, from School Road (North) to State Highway J.
10. Scope: Three (3) new lanes would be constructed from School Road (North) to J Hwy. This includes a curb and gutter section on 211th Street. A Pedestrian/Bicycle path will be provided along the entire length of the improved 211th Street and will connect to the existing Pedestrian/Bicycle path along Peculiar Way at School Road (North) which connects to the Peculiar Way & I-49 Interchange. Another project (Peculiar Way West)) would be designed and constructed along parallel paths. This project will improve Peculiar Way west of School Road (North), and connect to Y Hwy. This project may be advertised, bid and awarded at the same time as the initial 211th Street (East) project. The funding for this project would be provided by local agencies. Safety outcomes will occur during the construction phase, which could include paved shoulders and edge line/center line rumble strips. The construction phase will upgrade the existing asphalt road, from School road (North) to J Hwy, from two lanes to a standard three-lane road, with dedicated left turn lanes.
11. Project schedule: This project could be either a Design-Build or a traditional design, advertise, bid, award and construct project so the result will be technical design and construction plans, specifications, and cost estimates for the 211th Street East Corridor. Below is a typ. schedule for a design-bid-construct Award: Oct 2025; City releases RFQ for design firms: Nov 2025; RFQ responses due: Dec 2025; City evaluates submitted RFQ documents: Dec 2025; City Board of Aldermen approves the selected RFQ: Jan 2026; Winning firm receives the notice to proceed: Mar 2026; Winning firm completes final plan: Sept 2026; Peculiar Planning Commission approval: Nov 2026; City Board of Aldermen accepts the final plan: Dec 2026; Bid: Jan 2027; BOA Acceptance of bid: Feb 2027; Notice to Proceed: Apr 2027; Start of Construction: May 2027; Substantial Completion: Sept 2028; Completion: Oct 2028; Project closed out: On or before Nov 2028

This is an important project, Raymore-Peculiar school complex is a very busy area during school and when there are many community events going on in the area, the proposed road has had a lot of development recently and needs the improvement for safety and service to the area. Peculiar may only be a small community but that road in proximity ty the school serves a large segment of northern cass county and the surrounding communities.

This project would help to create better access to the Ray-Pec School district, and its more than 5000 population when school is in session. It also helps alleviate congestion at the C/J Hwy I-49 interchange, that is already beyond capacity.

This is a much needed improvement. Many people use this route to access the schools and the highway. The bike /walking path would make it much safer for people like my children to use to get to school and to after school jobs safely.

This project is very sorely needed. Especially if they end up building a new subdivision. Getting to the schools by walking or biking would be ideal from neighboring communities along 211th.

This is a much needed project. Especially with the ever growing population.

This project is very important for our community as this road handles a lot of traffic between J Hiway and the school. Safety is crucial on this stretch of road.

I doubt anyone who lives on 211th street would want this,you just put a water line through my front yard. The ground is still rough to say the least.

Would definitely like to have this as a three lane road with a sidewalk.
