No More Dead Ends
No more Dead End signs for drivers on the Highway 150 Outer Roads.
The frontage road once ending behind Sonic and Subway is now an extended 146th Terrace, providing drivers easier access to businesses along the north side of HWY 150. It begins at White Avenue and connects with Grand Summit Boulevard at HWY 150. The road will make it easier to get around HWY150 traffic, as well as access Gail’s Harley-Davidson, Subway and Sonic, and hopefully future businesses will choose to build along 146th Terrace to capture the attention and dollars of HWY150 drivers.
Also among the improvements-- new trails to and from River Oaks South Park meet up with the trail along HWY 150. Bicyclists, runners and walkers can now use a 70-foot pedestrian tunnel to make it safely over Oil Creek and down into the park to continue on a trail along 146th Terrace.
On the south side of HWY 150, crews have wrapped up their work on the outer road in front of QuikTrip. The street now continues past QT and winds its way to meet up with the I-49 Frontage Road.
MoDOT is paying for roughly half of the project. City Engineer Jackie White calls it “a bargain,” and credits part of that to the creative way Public Works is getting this project done through design/build.
The project cost just over $2.5 million. That includes:
- two bridges
- two roads
- LED lighting
- a pedestrian tunnel,
