The Kansas City Metro Area is a beehive of transportation activity. In order to manage the growth and prepare for an efficient and effective transportation system, the Kansas Department of Transportation and many local partners are working together to study the area and develop plans for the future. Here is a sampling of the projects and studies underway in the region.



Lewis & Clark Viaduct Concept Study

Lewis & Clark I-70 Viaduct Concept Study

Based on the 2012 Lewis and Clark I-70 Viaduct Concept Study, work will soon begin on a portion of the Lewis and Clark Viaduct. Closures for the reconstruction of the I-70 westbound bridge are scheduled to take place on Feb. 2 at 10 p.m. Temporary closures to install traffic control equipment may take place leading up to the two-year westbound closures.

K-7 & I-70 Interchange Project Web Site

K-7 & I-70 Interchange: Today. Tomorrow. Together.

The existing K-7 & I-70 Interchange in Bonner Springs is a major highway-to-highway interchange. KDOT and its local partners are managing the K-7 Corridor by planning for continuing growth in this area. KDOT has developed the preliminary design for interchanges at Kansas Avenue, I-70 and 130th Street that work together as one complete system. The preliminary design process began in 2007 and was completed in 2010. The new interchange design consists of ten phases and construction funding has been allocated for Phases 1-3 only.



Route 92 Centennial Bridge Study LogoThe Kansas Department of Transportation has identified a future need to replace the Centennial Bridge over the Missouri River located on K-92 in Kansas and Route 92 in Missouri. Through data collection, cost analysis and public input, the Route 92 Centennial Bridge Study will examine the options for constructing a four-lane bridge replacement. This includes determining a preferred location, bridge type, associated costs, potential funding mechanisms and conducting a preliminary assessment of the potential environmental impact. The study process includes preparing an Advanced Preliminary Engineering (APE) Report, as well as a Tolling & Revenue Report. The study started in late Fall 2014 and is was completed in 2016. Please see below for study related announcements, news and more.
