I29 and I35

I-29/I-35 EIS & Location Study




The FEIS evaluates the likely impacts of improvements to the I-29/I-35 corridor from Missouri Route 210 south over the Missouri River and to the northwest corner of the downtown loop. Impacts evaluated include possible changes to the natural environment, including air and noise, impacts to the man-made environment, including businesses, historic sites and homes, as well as impacts to surrounding neighborhoods and communities.

The FEIS details the need for improvements, including insufficient shoulders, through capacity, and outdated designs for merging and exiting. The recommended alternative calls for the construction of six through lanes in the corridor, including additional capacity across the Missouri River.

"We've worked very hard to be responsive to the input of the community, including introducing an approach that would build six through lanes now, but reserve the option for eight in the future. Our goal has been to create a safe and efficient interstate facility that meets the needs of the traveling public while minimizing impacts to businesses and residents that are near the corridor," said Beth Wright, MoDOT District Engineer.

The final document includes MoDOT's commitment to fund and begin construction of a bicycle and pedestrian crossing over the Missouri River on the Heart of America (Route 9) bridge in downtown Kansas City by 2012.

The FEIS was prepared under the direction of the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), with the cooperation of the Environmental Protection Agency, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Coast Guard and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
