The APWA KC Metro Chapter and KCITE invite you to attend our joint chapter meeting Wednesday, March 6, 2019 starting at 11:30 am.  This meeting will be held at The View-City of Grandview Community Center located at 13500 Byars Road in Grandview, MO.

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and Burns & McDonnell staff will present on the extensive Transportation Management Plan (TMP) and lessons learned during construction of the first phase of the Lewis and Clark Viaduct bridge repair project.  This is a multiphase project, administered by KDOT, on I-70 west of downtown Kansas City, Missouri and east of Kansas City, Kansas. 

The first phase, which sets up future construction that will address safety issues, requires the westbound direction of I-70 to be closed for two years for the reconstruction of the viaduct and major river crossing.  As part of the closure, a TMP was created to address traffic congestion issues.   The TMP was intended to communicate the detour plan to the public, and to make transportation improvements at critical points along the detour routes to increase capacity.

Presenters:

Jason VanNice, PE-KDOT

Paul Plotas, PE, PTOE, ENV SP-Burns & McDonnell

Kimberly Curry, PE-Burns & McDonnell

Catering by Affordable Elegance and includes baked vegatarian and meat lasagna choices and dessert.  Water, tea, and coffee also included.  Various soft drinks also provided courtesy of the City of Grandview.
