South Liberty Parkway Design-Build
TranSystems, as part of a design-build team, completed South Liberty Parkway extension, an east-west connection between I-35 and Route 291 to help drive economic development in the corridor between east and west Liberty, MO. In fast-growing Liberty, the new parkway alleviated congestion and opened up more than 1,000 acres for single-family residential and commercial area development. Phase II involved the extension of the existing South Liberty Parkway from Withers Road to Route 291 and included approximately 2.5 miles of four lane roadway, storm water improvements, two major bridges over rail lines and a creek, bikeway/pedestrian trails, four sidewalks, and other improvements. The design/build team developed a unique inverted roadway section that minimized construction cost, as well as long-term maintenance as part of the two-phased selection process.
