Extension of Rolling Hills west of Highway 71B, to provide an improvement east-west connection with Appleby Road (Ward 3).
Design for pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements along the existing corridor between Highway 71B and Old Missouri Road, along with traffic flow improvements at critical intersections.(design only)
Why is It Important?
Rolling Hills serves as an important east-west connection, and the parking lot to the west of the 71B/Rolling Hills corridor is being used as a connection to Appleby Road. Improving this connection for traffic capacity and safety is a priority. The existing section of Rolling Hills carries about 10,000 cars per day, but also is a street serving an existing neighborhood, and is a connection to Butterfield School. Therefore, safe facilities for bicycles and pedestrians is a priority as well. The cross section and details of the design will need to address all of these concerns.
What is the Current Status?
When Will it be Completed?
To Be Determined.
How is it Funded?
Funding for the project comes from the Bond issue that voters approved in April 2019.
