The final phase of Wornall Road improvements begin this month

The ~$13.8 million Wornall Road project first began in 2018. It is scheduled to conclude its next and final phase in 2024. Here’s what improvements you can expect.

It’s been a long road. Since 2018, the City of KCMO and the Waldo Community Improvement District have been working on Wornall Road’s infrastructure.

The City allocated ~$13.8 million to complete the project in two phases.

Phase one was completed in spring 2019. Upgrades were added from 85th Street to 89th Street — including a sidewalk, streetlights, and a new water line.

Now comes the finale: 74th Street to 79th Street.

Project bid reviews for phase two are expected to be completed this September. Then, contracts will be issued to:

  • Reconstruct the roadway to improve traffic flow
  • Add a new sidewalk along 79th Street
  • Add interconnected signals + LED streetlights
  • Modify the parking lot at 75th Street and Wornall Road
  • Integrate the smart sewer program
  • Extend the Trolley Trail Track from 74th Street to 75th Street
  • Replace the water main

Construction is projected to last 15-18 months.
