I-70/Woods Chapel Interchange

City of Blue Springs, MO

Project Summary

For this project, TranSystems provided management and topographical/ROW surveys in addition to engineering design. The improvements to .8 miles of Woods Chapel Road in Blue Springs, MO incorporate pedestrian friendly, multi-modal amenities and landscaping as well as better traffic flow.  The four-lane roadway with auxiliary turn lanes will become a three-lane roadway with central, two-way left-turn lane. Design elements include a roundabout and a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) over I-70, one of the first in Missouri. A mixture of stilling basins and silt fences, particularly at Lake Tapawingo, will limit runoff pollution.

Project Highlights

  • Overall design included a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI).
  • Mixture of stilling basins, silt fences and controlled construction sequencing in residential areas was incorporated to reduce runoff.
  • Reduced lane widths made it possible to incorporate pedestrian friendly, multi-modal amenities into the area.
