Belvidere Parkway reconstruction begins March 28

The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising motorists that reconstruction of Belvidere Parkway between North Congress Avenue and Missouri Highway 9 is scheduled to begin Monday, March 28.

The construction project calls for replacing existing roadway pavement, sidewalks, curbs, gutters and curb inlets, as well as reconstructing sidewalk ramps. The project is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 30, 2011.

In the first phase of the reconstruction, the eastbound lane of Belvidere Parkway will be closed and detoured to Northwest 75th Street. When the second phase of the project begins in May, the eastbound lane will be opened and the westbound lane of the parkway will be closed and detoured to Northwest 75th Street.

As a result of both closures, residents along the parkway may have limited access to their driveways on certain days. Residents will be notified when their properties are affected.

“We recognize that the closing of the parkway will pose a major inconvenience for people in the area, particularly those residents along the road. We appreciate their patience during the reconstruction,” said Jeff Martin, public works project manager for the City of Kansas City, Mo.

Parking will be allowed on the north side of the westbound lane during Phase 1 and on the south side of the eastbound lane during Phase 2. Additional parking will be available on side streets.

“Because the median will separate moving traffic from the work zone, the alternate closures will provide safety for motorists, workers and residents along the parkway. It will also allow the project to be completed more quickly,” Martin said.

The third phase of the project will be the reconstruction of the intersection at Belvidere Parkway and North Congress Avenue. The intersection will be closed to traffic, but all residents will have access to their properties. Detours around the construction will be marked.

All sidewalks will be replaced with ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Lexeco of Leavenworth, Kan., is the construction contractor for the project.
