The City of Grandview is committed to the upkeep and improvement of its transportation system. The Citizens of Grandview approved a Transportation Sales Tax and a Capital Improvements Sale Tax from which the City dedicates funds each year to its Asphalt Overlay Program, Slurry Seal Program, Sidewalk Repair Program, Curb Repair Program, New Curb Program and New Sidewalk Program. The Annual Programs for the proposed City of Grandview’s 2013 Asphalt Overlay Program, Slurry Seal Program, Sidewalk Repair Program, and the Curb Repair Program have been approved by the Board of Aldermen on April 9, 2013.

Annual ASPHALT OVERLAY PROGRAM

The asphalt overlay and slurry seal programs work together to keep the city’s streets in a safe, acceptable condition. Our engineers evaluate the city’s street system and then rank streets according to degree of deterioration, traffic volume, and other factors. The public works staff then puts together an annual program for both asphalt overlay and slurry seal balancing the needs of the neighborhood streets, major streets, and the budget.

Typically, construction of the annual Asphalt Overlay Program takes place in June. This two-step process involves first, the removal of excess asphalt on the street by a milling. The second step is placing a new asphalt overlay on the street. On days we are milling and paving, we must prohibit parking. This year’s program is funded at $375,000 by the Transportation Sales Tax Fund.
We are proposing the following street segments be included in the 2013 asphalt overlay program:

street from to
13th Street 133rd Street 135th St.
133rd Terr Byars Rd Crystal Ave
135th St West Frontage Road 400ft west of 12th St
150th Terr Bellaire Ave White Ave
Armitage Dr North City Limit 120th Terr
Raytown Rd. Southbound East City Limit Highgrove Rd

Annual Slurry Seal Program

Typically, construction of the annual Slurry Seal Program takes place between mid-July and mid-August. On the day slurry is applied to the street, parking is prohibited and the street closed to traffic. The 2013 Slurry Seal Program is funded at $65,000 by the Transportation Sales Tax Fund.
We are proposing the following street segments be included in the 2013 slurry seal program:

Street from to
12th St Duck Rd Jones Ave
15th St Harry Truman Dr. Duck Road 
133rd Terr Bennington Ave DE East
134th Terr 13th Street DE West

Annual Sidewalk and Curb Replacement Programs 

The annual Sidewalk and Curb Replacement Programs involves removing and replacing segments of existing sidewalk or curb at various locations. The program includes areas identified through citizen complaints, and those identified by our staff. A driving force in final selection of places to work is the need to develop an ADA compliant infrastructure. Since this part of the program involves streets that are part of the annual asphalt overlay program, construction typically starts April 1 and is complete by mid-June.

To lessen costs, one contractor typically builds the annual new sidewalk program and the annual new curb program. Design of both programs is underway. A public hearing to receive comments on these two programs is tentatively scheduled for late May 2013. Construction is not expected to take place until late summer or early fall.

Main Street Phase 3 Project - COMPLETED

Main Street Phase II - Completed Phase 3 of Main Street Revitalization Project is a short 475 foot long segment between the east side of 13th Street to 150 ft west of 15th Street. While the street travel way will receive an asphalt overlay, the major features of the phase involve building new curb, sidewalk, and storm drainage collection improvements. Phase 3 will also replace the streetlights with modern energy-efficient fixtures and new decorative poles, matching those used in Phase 1 and Phase 2. Construction will not start until sometime after the Truman Heritage Festival to be held May 4-6, 2012. During construction of this phase, at least one lane in each direction will be open to allow for through traffic to continue to use the street.

Funds for improvements to this phase of Main Street will come from a combination of the City’s Capital Improvements Sales Tax and a Federal Highway Administration grant.

Main Street Phase 4 Project

Although construction of Phase 4 of the Main Street Revitalization Project is not scheduled until 2014-2015, work designing that improvement will take place during most of 2012. This phase of work will be a complicated project that will connect Phase 3 to the West Frontage Road. Once data is collected on the existing conditions the City’s design team seek input from property owners, businesses, patrons, and citizens on both what is needed within this segment and how best to address those needs. As with Phase 3, Phase 4 will be funded by a combination of the City’s Capital Improvements Sales Tax and a Federal Highway Administration grant.
