Friday Greetings,

MoDOT held a public meeting about the environmental study for the new Buck O’Neil Bridge on Tuesday. If you were not able to attend, the information shared about the meeting is available online at https://www.modot.org/buck-oneil-environmental-study-online-public-meeting.  The online public meeting includes a feedback survey. Construction of a new bridge could have a positive impact on Burlington traffic, so we encourage you to participate in this process and share your opinions.

Due to the snow event that is commencing Friday and continuing into the weekend, Public Works crews will be focusing on snow/ice removal activities and will not be putting up flags throughout the downtown area for the Presidents’ Day holiday.

On Sunday, February 17 at 8 a.m. the Sweetheart Shuffle will take place in North Kansas City.  It is estimated that less than 200 participants will be involved.  The course will begin and end in the parking lot of Macken Park and utilize roads north of Armour Rd.  This is an open course, and there are no road closures associated with the event.

Vernon Street between Armour Road and Diamond Parkway will be closed on Monday, February 18 to accommodate a crane that will be set in the roadway to move an MRI machine into the new medical office building. Belger Cartage has submitted a detour plan for the area that has been approved by City staff and the roadway will re-open by the end of the day. The crane will straddle the median on Vernon in order to lift the MRI machine into the building.

City offices will be closed on Monday, February 18 in observation of Presidents Day.

No work session is scheduled on Tuesday, February 19.

In the Week in Review on December 14, 2018, we reported that 40 of the City-owned LED street lights in the downtown area were either very dim, or not working at all. Since then, the 40 faulty light fixtures have been replaced, but another 36 have gone out. New LED light fixtures will be shipped in two weeks, and the City’s street light/traffic signal repair contractor will install them. Although the manufacturer has honored the 10-year warranty and sending replacements at no cost, the City is paying for the installation costs.
