The 2017-2021 CIP totals $303,968,000 (including funding from prior years), up from
$284,700,000 in the 2016-2020 plan. The increase in the total is due primarily to the
addition of multiple road & bridge projects as a result of remaining revenues in the CIP
Sales Tax. Significant changes to the CIP include:
Several of the new projects will not only support their associated systems, but will also support economic development in the following ways:
Commerce Drive Construction. This project is in direct support of generating economic activity in a primary market target area identified by City Council near Douglas and Tudor. This project opens additional ground with access that connects to the recent Tudor Road improvements.
Construction of Jefferson Street from Persels to Oldham. This project continues the significant investment in transportation infrastructure for capacity and context required by redevelopment interests. This project will complete a network of roadway and multi-modal improvements that include Bailey Road, Jefferson Street south of Persels, and M291 Interchange with US50 increasing the vitality of many significantly underutilized properties.
Blackwell Interchange with US50 Project. This new interchange will provide needed access for over 900 acres of development opportunity in eastern Lee’s Summit.
Cedar Creek Improvement MH 29-220 to MH 37-001. This project will address hydraulic bottlenecks in the in the interceptor sewer which serves much of downtown Lee’s Summit. Improvements to this main will help the existing customers and build capacity for the proposed densification of the downtown business core.

Water Main US 50 Hwy Blackwell to Smart. This is a water main upsize project to support the current customers in the US 50 east area of Lee’s Summit Water Utilities. This project will also provide support and capacity for economic development of that area.
