Route 45 is a critical east/west route and traffic is expected to increase substantially by the year 2030. These improvements will accommodate development, and most important, improve traffic safety. It will also create a safe, efficient, environmentally sound, and economical transportation facility that meets the needs of the area.

What is MoDOT doing and how will this benefit me?

MoDOT will continue to widen Route 45 to four lanes from I-435 to Route K. This project will also include retaining walls along the road, adding a roundabout, and building a trail that begins at Route K and ends at Brink Myers Road. The goal is to increase capacity for more vehicles, improve intersection safety and increase driver sight distance by flattening the hills.

This project is the final phase of work that began in 2008.

How is this project funded?

This is a jointly funded project between MoDOT, the City of Parkville and Platte County.

  • Cost Share– Missouri Transportation and Highway Commission:  $3.1 million
  • Federal Surface Transportation Funds – administered by City of Parkville:  $5.7 million
  • Local Funds–Platte County:  $1.5 million
  • Kansas City District MoDOT Funds:  $2.2 million

When will construction begin?

Currently this project is in preliminary design phase and road construction is scheduled to begin in 2016. However residents will see utility work as early this summer to prepare the site for road construction.

Once preliminary plans are complete, we will perform both architectural and archeological surveys. This will be complete by this summer.

How will traffic be routed during road construction?

This has not been determined because MoDOT is still in the preliminary phase of design.
