MoDOT Kansas City District Announces Appointment of New District Engineer

LEES SUMMIT –The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the appointment of Brian Kidwell as the Kansas City District’s new District Engineer. Kidwell has served as the Assistant District Engineer of program delivery for the KC District since 2011. The KC District covers a nine county region including Cass, Clay, Jackson, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis, Platte, Ray, and Saline counties. This includes a total population of 1,259,938, and 3,042 miles of state highways to maintain.

“I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to lead MoDOT’s Kansas City District team,” Kidwell said. “My goal is to build and develop relationships inside and outside MoDOT to ensure a collaborative, sincere and personal approach in delivering a safe and effective transportation system for our deserving community.”

Before his role as the Assistant District Engineer, Kidwell served as project director for MoDOT’s $245 million Interstate 29/35 design-build “kcICON” Project featuring the award-winning Christopher S. Bond Missouri River Bridge. The kcICON Project was selected as the country’s top road project of 2010 by Roads and Bridges, a national transportation-industry magazine.

Kidwell has been with the department for more than 26 years managing highway projects in the Kansas City Region. “Having spent 26 years with MoDOT in a variety of roles, and as a proud Missouri native, my respect runs deep for our hardworking MoDOT employees. Many of our employees make significant sacrifices as they serve the public, our community leaders and other stakeholders,” he said. 

He earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree from the University of Missouri-Rolla.
