Gateway Project Recognized for Sustainability

Grandview Main Street RevitalizationThe City of Grandview’s Main Street Improvement Project has been recognized by Mid-America Regional Council as a 2016 Sustainable Success Stories Honoree. This four-phase effort has brought many improvements to the community by revitalizing nine blocks of Main Street from the downtown business district to 71 Highway. The Main Street Improvement Project emphasized environmental responsibility through low-impact construction, use of native plant species to assist with stormwater management, and road-diet concepts to create right-sized streets that enable walkability for citizens. BHC RHODES led a team to prepare construction plans for road, drainage, mil & overlay, streetscape, landscaping, lighting, parking, and traffic signal enhancements.
