The Raymore Public Works Department works year-round to complete a number of infrastructure and building projects for residents. Below you will find a list of the projects currently underway:
155th Street Bridge Reconstruction & Road Improvements
In 2015, the City of Kansas City, Missouri, who own half of the bridge and roadway, closed the two-lane bridge just east of Madison along 155th Street. Although Kansas City had no plans to re-open it, the Raymore officials began negotiating with Kansas City to repair the bridge and take it over so Raymore could conduct regular maintenance on the roadway used by many on the northeast side of the City.
Kansas City agreed to pay for half of the $1.4 million dollar project that will expand and repair the bridge and update the surrounding roadway.
The project is currently under final design and construction is expected to begin in late fall 2017. The project is expected to be fully completed by spring 2018.
Annual and on-going projects
These projects are part of the City's annual Capital Improvements Project budget and provide funding to some of the most important maintenance to our road and sidewalk/trail network. Typically, these projects are authorized in spring/summer and completed by late fall/winter.
