A safer drive on 155th Street

Post Date:10/24/2018 10:50 AM

RAYMORE, MO - Starting Monday, Oct. 29, 155th Street from North Madison Street to North Kurzweil Road will be closed so construction crews can begin preparing the mile-long section of the road to be widened from 16 155th bridgefeet to 20 feet across.

This is the third and final phase of the $1.4 million 155th Street Road Improvements and Bridge Reconstruction Project. The first two phases of the project included installation of pipe crossings, ditch work, street resurfacing and paving the section of 155th Street within Raymore city limits and reconstruction of the bridge just east of North Madison Street.

The City has contracted with Superior Bowen for this third phase of the project and expects to have the street reopened within about 30 days, depending on weather.

Some trees will need to be removed on the north side of 155th before crews can widen the road, and by closing the street for the duration of the project, it will be completed faster and more efficiently than if sections of the street were opened and closed at various stages of work. Residents living within the construction area will still have access to their homes as needed.

Message boards and detour signs will be posted in the area to direct drivers to alternate routes.

Direct any questions to 816-331-1852 or email project engineer Phil Becker.
