FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 23, 2010

Temporary signal at Barry Road and Boardwalk/Roanridge

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Public Works Department is advising motorists that as part of the project to improve traffic flow on Barry Road east of I-29, traffic control at the intersection of Barry Road and Boardwalk/Roanridge Drives will be transitioned to a temporary traffic signal at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 24.

During the time of transition, all movement at the intersection will be brought to a stop in order to accommodate the transition to the temporary signal.

The temporary traffic signal will be in use until late summer, when a new traffic signal configuration becomes operational.

These improvements are part of a $2.5 million project designed to improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and enhance safety at the intersections of Boardwalk/Roanridge and Ambassador/Barrybrooke Drives. Since 1996, traffic on this section of NW Barry Road has increased from 27,000 to 42,000 cars per day. It is anticipated that traffic will increase to more than 57,000 cars per day by the year 2030. This section of Barry Road services a major ATA transit station. Improvements should reduce travel delays for both automobile and bus traffic.

Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this closure should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer for the Public Works Department, 816-513-2659.
