The roadway project will widen the existing section of Zion Road from Vantage Drive to Crossover Road (Highway 265). The project will include:
• A combination of 2 and 3 lane sections.
• A mini-roundabout at the intersection of Old Missouri Road.
• 5-foot-wide sidewalks along both sides of the roadway.
• 5-foot-wide bicycle lanes.
Why is it important?
This collector street is a key east-west connection between College Avenue (Hwy 71B) and Crossover Road (Hwy 265).
What is the current status?
McClelland Consulting Engineers is the design engineer of record for this project. The design is complete and the City is currently acquiring the necessary rights-of-way and utility easements for the construction of the project. The City has currently acquired 12 out of the 18 properties necessary for construction.
When is completion expected?
Construction is dependent upon available funding, and should take approximately 18 months to complete. A construction bid date will be set after the Rupple Road and the Old Wire Road projects have been bid and the funding has been evaluated.
