Route 150 Diverging Diamond, Half Diamond Interchanges Open

KANSAS CITY - The new Route 150 diverging diamond interchange at Botts Road one mile west of Route 71 opened Wednesday evening. Also opening is the new half-diamond interchange at Thunderbird Road providing commercial truck access to CenterPoint Intermodal Center.

The two new interchanges provide faster access to separate and distinct business areas adjacent to Route 150. The new Botts Road diverging diamond interchange serves not only the National Nuclear Security Administration campus to the northwest, but also CenterPoint to the south and many manufacturing and other businesses along Botts Road in south Grandview. The Thunderbird Road half diamond primarily serves CenterPoint intermodal motor carriers moving to and from Route 71, which soon will become I-49. The slower-moving heavy trucks will remain segregated from most vehicular traffic accessing CenterPoint through the Botts Road interchange.

The projects are part of nearly $16 million invested in access improvements along Route 150. Loch Sand and Construction Co. was the general contractor for both projects.
