Roadway improvements, bicycle accommodations, and sidewalks are proposed for this project, between Vantage Drive and Highway 265. A mini-roundabout is proposed at the Old Missouri Road as well. City Council approved a construction contract with Tri Star Contractors on July 21, 2020.
Why is It Important?
Zion Road is an east west connection between Highway 265 and College Avenue, that has seen both residential and commercial development. The section between Old Missouri Road is narrow and curvy, and lacks sidewalks. Improvements to this corridor will allow for additional development, and will provide a safe connection for all users.
What is the Current Status?
Construction began in early November of 2020, resulting in closure of sections of Zion Road beginning in May 2021. Due to the improvements under construction on Zion Road between Vantage Drive and N. Crossover Road, sections of Zion must continue to be closed to through traffic for the remainder of the project. For details on the expected closures, click here.
When Will it be Completed?
Construction should be completed by the end of March 2022.
How is it Funded?
Funding for the project comes from the Bond issue that voters approved in April 2019.
