General Information

G8.1 Project title: Operation Green Light Traffic Signal Advancements MO
G8.2 Project description: The Regional Operation Green Light Regional program is enhanced with a Traffic Responsive system and advanced detection on US 71, vehicle detection where none exists in KCMO, advanced traffic signal controllers and CCTV in key locations in the region. This work will modernize the intersections to allow for more efficient operation for all users including pedestrians and transit.

G1. Project Type: Road & Bridge - ITS Capital Improvements
G2. Funding Stream: CMAQ STP
G3. TIP Number:
G4. State: Missouri
G5. Project county: 1. Cass 2. Clay 3. Jackson
G6. Project municipality: 1. Multi-City
G7. Multiple agencies / jurisdictions? Yes
Missouri Department of Transportation, the Cities of Belton, Gladstone, Independence, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, North Kansas City and Raymore
G8.4 Purpose and need: Project includes advanced vehicle detection on US71 at Gregory, 59th and 55th for a Traffic Responsive Module to the ATMS software to improve time of day operations. Advances in signal operations allow for high resolution data for advanced performance. Addition of CCTV’s allow for improved operations for observations of traffic and response to incidents. Controllers are in MoDOT, Gladstone, Lees Summit. Side street vehicle Detection will be added in KCMO where there currently is none to increase traffic signal efficiency. CCTV will be added in MoDOT, Belton, Raymore Independence and KCMO where there is no coverage to allow for the ability to respond to traffic signal malfunctions and to monitor traffic flow. Totals include 30 vehicle detection approaches, 32 CCTV and 117 traffic signals controllers. This project includes PE (preliminary engineering) for a construction project that would install vehicle detection and CCTV
