TitleKCMO Breaks Ground on N. Brighton Improvements

KANSAS CITY, MO — Neighbors, city staff and project contractors kicked off construction on N. Brighton Avenue with a groundbreaking event. The roadway is being upgraded from NE 58th Street to just north of the Pleasant Valley Road intersection — a one-mile long project. Improvements should be completed by fall 2021.

“This is a highly anticipated project,” said Kim Pemberton, Project Manager with the Kansas City Public Works Department. “Residents have been waiting a long time for this improvement, and we are excited to see it become a reality for our residents.”

Construction is split into three phases with phase one starting this fall, phase two including most of 2020 and phase three picking up the last part of 2020 through the fall of 2021.

Funding for the project is provided by the Shoal Creek TIF and District 1 Public Improvements Advisory Committee funds.

Improvements include:
  • street widening to a four-lane road with a center median
  • flattening hills and valleys
  • addition of curbs and gutters, new sidewalks, bike lanes
  • a new enclosed storm sewer system
  • water line replacement
  • new street lighting
  • street trees
  • pedestrian rest areas
