Project Description:

Wornall Road is just east of Leawood and runs parallel to the Missouri/Kansas border. This project will reconstruct Wornall Road from 74th Street to 79th Street. Roadway improvements include:

  • Newly reconstructed roadway
  • Trolley Track Trail extension from 74th to 75th Street
  • Improved traffic flow
  • Pedestrian accommodations
  • Parking lot modifications at 75th and Wornall Rd.
  • New, interconnected signals
  • Coordination with the KCMO Smart Sewer Program– Green Infrastructure
  • New sidewalk along 79th St.
  • New LED streetlights
  • Water main replacement on Wornall Rd. from 75th to 77th Street


In 2015, the City and the Waldo Community Improvement District conducted an assessment of the intersection of 75th Street and Wornall Road in order to evaluate traffic capacity, safety, and walkability of the intersection. The study resulted in recommendations that are aimed to improve traffic flow, while at the same time improve the intersection so that it incorporates features to improve pedestrian friendliness. The study also identified ways to extend the Trolley Track Trail between 74th Street and 75th Street, thereby eliminating a major barrier for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Since that time, the City, working with the Waldo CID, has received a $2 million grant to implement the results of the study. The City has appropriated funds for the reconstruction of curbs and sidewalks along Wornall Road from 74th and 75th Street. Given the extensive work proposed, the City is now aiming to completely reconstruct Wornall Road from 74th Street to 79th Street, a stretch of roadway that is well worn and beyond ordinary maintenance. This is significant work that, when completed, will improve this key commercial corridor within Waldo.

Traffic Impact:

Traffic will continue to be impacted throughout the entirety of the project.
