General Information

1. Project name: E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street
2. City(ies), County(ies), State: Peculiar and Cass County Missouri
3. Routes, interchanges and/or intersections: E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street is a planned two-lane major collector street that runs east/west, providing access to the regional highway system by way of an interchange with I-49, via Rt. C. The intersection at E. 3rd Street & Rt. C is a stop sign and a flashing red light for the side street movements, with uninterrupted flow along Rt. C. The City’s 2008 Comprehensive Plan identified E. Broadway as a secondary transportation priority. Peculiar’s 2015 Comprehensive Plan update identified the E Broadway Corridor as an important capital improvement, currently serving the existing the downtown business district within the city limits of Peculiar. With the I-49/Peculiar Way interchange completed, the E Broadway Corridor is one of the City’s top transportation priorities. This project is the next step following the Peculiar’s 2015 Comprehensive Plan update, which developed Corridor alignment options and recommended the option the City is pursuing with this project.
4. Primary project mode: Highway/roadway 
5. Supplementary project mode(s): * Active Transportation * Freight * Highway/Roadway * Transit )
Highway: E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street will provide interconnectivity with Route C, and access to the interstate, via Route C to I-49. Transit: A principal user of E. Broadway will be the Ray-Pec School District, which has Peculiar Elementary east of Route C at E. Braodway and E. 3rd Street . Bike: E. Broadway will be equipped with a bike route promoting non-vechical traffic to and from the existing downtown area, local neighborhoods, and the Elementary School. The lack of a bike roadway along E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street is a major barrier to non-motorozied travel and the proejct will provide a roadway mitigating this barrier. Pedestrian: E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street currnently allows for pedestrian traffic. As with other modes of transportation, interconnected and shorter, safer routes will be provided.
6. Project Purpose: * System expansion (added capacity) )

8. Total budget in 2019 dollars: $1000000
9. Project description: E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd 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)/211th Street (East) from Y Hwy to J Hwy. The Peculiar Way (West)/211th Street (East) projects will be a separate Regional Transportation 2050 project submission. Peculiar’s land-use plan calls for this project to be connected to the City’s downtown region. E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street Harper Road will be a primary east/west traffic mover connected to this center, near the downtown region of Peculiar; and will serve as one planned segment of a major collector road linking the City with cities and counties to the north and south. The current condition of the project’s 0.2 miles has two lanes of asphalt paving, with a 25-foot cross-section, with no curbs or gutters, from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street, including the intersection of C Hwy and E. Broadway. The section of E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street is currently developed land. This is a project request so the repairs/upgrades will take place during the construction phase. When completed, the E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street Corridor will be a major collector Complete Street, with a standard three-lane road with shoulders, for approximately 0.2 miles, from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street with dedicated left turn lanes.
10. Scope: Three (3) new lanes would be constructed from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street. This includes a curb and gutter section on E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street. A Pedestrian/Bicycle path will be provided along the entire length of the improved E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street and will connect to the existing Pedestrian/Bicycle path at the planned/proposed Peculiar Way & Harper Road, and Peculiar Way I-49 Interchange, via W. Broadway. 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 E. Broadway from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street; including the intersection improvements at Route C and E. 3rd Street, from two lanes to a standard three-lane road. The project will traverse developed land, from Route C (Main Street) to E. 3rd Street along e. 3rd Street, which will be part of the 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 E. Broadway Corridor.

This would help provide the students attending our elementary school with a safe route to school.

This is also a an intersection than can become hazardous when people arent familiar with the traffic patterns.

Sounds like an interesting project and Im in anticipation of it being completed. However, this section of E Broadway is currently one of the worst streets in the City. The City has passed over resurfacing it at every turn. Suggest some form of partial project be considered to resurface E Broadway now, or at least by 2020.

I feel this is a high traffic area that needs addressed which is used by the school district, city court, and local businesses. This is a community corridor that sadly represents are city. These improvements are highly needed to attract future businesses and residents to ensure future growth of our community.

this road is the main route for students and buses to the elementary school. Improvement is way over due for the safety of our children. The installation of sidewalks is a must for those walkers to r comment here
