Riverview Crossroads one step closer to completion
The City of Edwardsville, Kansas, announced that it is one step closer to completing the much anticipated Riverview Crossroads project. 110th Street is now open to traffic.
The City of Edwardsville along with Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) hired King’s Construction and BHC to complete the roadway improvements. BHC’s Public Works segment designed the project and provided Construction Engineering Inspection services. Their inspectors monitored the details and requirements very closely to ensure the highest quality construction for future users.
This project was made possible through a $3 million Surface Transportation Program grant award through the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC). The total project was estimated at $5.5 million when it was originally conceived in late 2018.
The scope of the project included roadway and pedestrian improvements for 110th Street and Riverview Avenue south of I-70 to support current and anticipated commercial, industrial, and residential development activity in both Edwardsville and Bonner Springs. The improved intersection operations includes a new roundabout to accommodate significant truck traffic and increased local traffic. 110th Street was widened to four lanes with a median to improve aesthetics and implement access management. A sidewalk and a 10-foot multi-use path are included and tie into existing pedestrian facilities near I-70.
The Riverview Crossroads project supports the future development of Village West and Village South, along with the plans for new Compass Center.
