The study for Missouri Highway Route 9 in Parkville, MO and Riverside, MO provided specific design details to turn the urban two-lane highway into a two-lane/three-lane “Complete Street” with enhancements in safety, congestion mitigation, and aesthetics to engage pedestrians, recreational and commuter bicyclists, and public transportation users. By incorporating comments from the personalized public meetings and one-on-one meetings, the study determined the optimal benefits both on a large scale for the future population growth and on a small scale for the local users/business owners. The goals of the project include safety improvements for all multimodal users, improvements to increase traffic capacity, aesthetic and pedestrian management, reservation of future right-of-way, planned designs to accommodate new development, and a scope and implementation plan to finance the roadway modernization. The study was performed in conjunction with the Mid-America Regional Council, MoDOT, Platte County, Park University, the City of Riverside, and the City of Parkville and covered 3.68 miles from Route 45 to Mattox Road.CFS Engineers responsibilities include project management, concept development, roadway planning and preliminary design, project evaluation and segment phasing strategy, and a final report documenting findings of the study. Traffic engineering analysis and modeling was included as well as public involvement with property owners.
