This web page provides detailed information regarding the Route 9 Corridor Study. The Study was adopted by the Board of Aldermen on January 5, 2016.
Grant Status Update:
On March 25, 2016, the Board of Aldermen approved Resolution No. 16-004 approving and endorsing an application to the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) for sub-allocated Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds through the 2016 Call for Projects. On October 25, 2016, the MARC Board of Directors approved the 2016 4th Quarter Amendment to the 2016-2020 Transportation Improvement Program — this included $965,000 in FHWA funding towards the $1.2 million Route 9 Corridor Complete Streets Improvements – Route 45 to Clark Ave. transportation project. The remainder $235,000 is provided by local match funds via revenues from the 9 Highway Corridor Community Improvement District. Staff anticipates final engineering & design to commence in early 2017 with construction to be completed in Fall 2018.
The study was principally finished by the consultant team in December 2015. The study and concurring report was adopted by the Board of Aldermen on January 5, 2016. The final report and its appendixes can be found below:

Route 9 is regionally significant, connecting vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Route 45 to employment centers and regional destinations including downtown Parkville, Park University, the Horizons, over 200 acres of parkland, the South Platte County Community Center and the Platte County Health Department. The purpose of the Route 9 Corridor Study is to create an implementation plan that addresses the following key priorities for the project partners:
- Determine needed vehicular and pedestrian improvements to mitigate safety and capacity issues, and minimize traffic conflicts, on Route 9.
- Enhance aesthetics and pedestrian movements, particularly in proximity to downtown Parkville and Park University.
- Accommodate compatible new development and redevelopment along the corridor.
- Reduce future construction costs by facilitating the reservation of right-of-way for future improvements.
- Position the participating municipalities to compete in future transportation grant cycles for eligible improvements in the corridor
The Mid America Regional Council (MARC) Board of Directors awarded a $113,586 grant to assist in the completion of the Route 9 Corridor Study. The grant is supplemented by $75,000 of local funding provided by Parkville ($15,000), Riverside ($15,000), Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) ($20,000), Platte County ($15,000) and Park University ($10,000).
Scope of Work:
The scope of work for the Corridor Study includes developing a construction phasing strategy for incremental implementation of improvements as funding and capacity allow. All phases, and projects within phases, will be priority rank-ordered based on need, urgency, feasibility, cost, economic impact, and overall benefit to the corridor in terms of resolving traffic conflicts.
