Improvement Project Narrative

Improvement Project Narrative

The City of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, requests $20,900,000 in U.S. Department of Transportation
(DOT) Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) funding for a
$26,900,000 multi-modal project that will improve safety and connectivity in Excelsior Springs
through improvements to current roadways, the addition of sidewalks and trails, and pedestrian
bridge over U.S. Highway 69 (US-69). The project transforms several main corridors, including
US-69, and MO-Route 10 (MO-10) into safely designed complete streets to boost economic
competitiveness for a small-town community. Grant funds will be used to construct roadway
and intersection improvements, sidewalks and shared-use paths, manage stormwater runoff , and
enhance the streetscape. As a smaller community, Excelsior Springs’ project aligns with the goals
to improve infrastructure, address public health and safety, promote connectivity, and facilitate
economic development. Our project will create jobs, safer corridors, we are adopting transformative
technology in our project, addressing climate change through reduced vehicle trips, increasing
equity by eliminating barriers to community destinations.
