General Information

G8.1 Project title: State Line Traffic Signal Fiber Interconnect
G8.2 Project description: Construction of traffic signal fiber optics to interconnect traffic signals along State Line Rd. Install equipment necessary for the Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS), including but not limited to fiber optic interconnect system, energy efficient 332L cabinets, 2070 LX controllers, PTZ camera system. Accessible Pedestrian Signals will be installed at select locations along the corridor. Detection equipment and protected-permissive phasing is proposed to be modified for improved efficiency in addition to reducing delay, traffic accidents and gas consumption.

G1. Project Type: Road & Bridge - ITS Capital Improvements
G2. Funding Stream: CMAQ
G3. TIP Number:
G4. State: Regional (bistate)
G5. Project county: 1. Jackson 2. Johnson
G6. Project municipality: 1. Kansas City, MO 2. Leawood
G7. Multiple agencies / jurisdictions? No
G8.4 Purpose and need: The purpose of this proposal would be to interconnect a total of 13 traffic signals with communication back to KCMO Traffic Management Center along a busy north-south corridor by filling in gaps and connecting several previous projects. This would allow for optimum signal timing coordination along a bi-state corridor. This phase would directly connect 6 traffic signals with an previous stand alone phase which connected 7 traffic signals. This phase would provide a fiber connection for all 13 signals directly back to the KCMO Traffic Operations Center.
G9. Origin and ending
  Length (Miles):
State Line Rd
Red Bridge Rd
G10. Functional Classification: Principal Arterial
G11. In Transportation Outlook 2040? No   Decade:   --Select--
G12. Muli-Agency Plan? No
G13. Included in a CIP? Yes
Matching local funds needed for this project have been allocated from the KCMO Capital Improvements Plan.
G14. Planning stage: Preliminary Plan
G15. Reviewed by state DOT? No
G16. Right-of-Way acquisition: All acquired or none needed
G17. ROW by local public agency process manual? Yes
G18. Other unique local goals and objectives? Yes
This project will support local goal to enhance the efficiency of the traffic signal operations along the corridor. The project will satisfy the Citys goal of installing accessible pedestrian signals at some of the traffic signals along the corridor as well as energy efficient power supplies for the traffic signal cabinets.
G19. Transportation Disadvantaged Population: By installing Accessible Pedestrian Signals along the corridor, persons who are blind, low-vision or older adults will have safe and reliable WALK and DONT WALK information from the traffic signals.
G20. Relevant Public Engagement:
G21. Planned Public Engagement:
G22. Sustainable Places Criteria: ---------------- Complete Street Design--------------- ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ------
G22.1. Describe CSP relationship: Incorporate Accessible Pedestrian Signals into the signalized intersections, improving pedestrian access and safety. Coordinating the traffic signals along the entire corridor encouraging a safe speed limit for vehicles. Update the pedestrian timing for safer and more consistency along the corridor.
G23. Implements Sustainable Places Initiatives? No
G24. Serves Regional Activity Center? Yes
Less-Intense and Less-Walkable Centers Project supports coordinated traffic signals and there by improves traffic flow along the corridor that provides access to and from the activity center. In addition, coordinated traffic signals can lower vehicle emissions thereby improving the environment and air quality. Improved pedestrian timing would enhance the walkability of the area.
G25. Environmental justice tracts? Yes
Project supports coordinated traffic signals and there by improves traffic flow along the corridor that provides access to and from the environmental justice tracts.
G26. Reduces greenhouse gas emissions? Yes
By having 13 Traffic Signals along this principal arterial interconnected with fiber, Traffic Engineers would be able to coordinate the signal timing of the corridor, reducing delays and the number of vehicle hours spent at unnecessary red lights, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
G27. Natural Resource information:
G28. Community Links at Watershaed Scale:
G29. Explain local land use or comprehensive plans: This project will satisfy the Citys goal of improving traffic progression and safety. This project includes segments of roadway identified as a Thoroughfare in the Citys Major Street Plan which was adopted by ordinance 110249 on October 23, 2011.
G30.1 Complies with MARC’s CSP? Yes
G30.2 Exception to the MARC CSP? No This project supports upgrade of traffic signal power supplies to improve energy efficiency. Project will improve pedestrian walkability by providing accessible pedestrian signals and by updating pedestrian signal timing. Project will support bus rapid transit operations. Detection zones will be added for bike lanes where appropriate to improve bicycle mobility. Project reduces fuel consumption due to delay at traffic signals and thereby promotes efficiency of resources.

Project Financial Information

CMAQ Federal amount 680  (Thousands of $)
CMAQ Match amount: 170  (Thousands of $)
CMAQ Year requested: 2022
Source of Local Match: City of Kansas City
Explain: Local match has been allocated for this project from Traffic Signal funds.
Scope Change: This project fills the gap between two sections of existing fiber optic interconnections and provides a backhaul to the TOC so cutting the length would eliminate a lot of the benefits listed.
Cost Breakdown:
Highway:   %
Transit: 10  %
Bike: 5  %
Pedestrian: 10  %
Other: 75  %
