Pleasant Valley Road Improvements

Gladstone and Kansas City

Walter P Moore was selected by the cities of Gladstone and Kansas City, Missouri for this roadway improvement project. Pleasant Valley Road extends into both cities. The existing roadway was narrow with steep roadside ditches and had horizontal and vertical curves that required upgrades to meet current design standards and improve safety. 

The new roadway consists of a three-lane asphalt roadway with concrete curb and gutter, a sidewalk on one side, a 10-foot wide multi-use path along a majority of the corridor, new LED streetlights, and landscaping elements including stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to improve water quality. 1,550 LF of Pleasant Valley Road was reconstructed, while 2,900 LF of new horizontal alignment of was designed through parcels of undeveloped land. Extensive grading was required for this segment of roadway. Additional features include a roundabout with gateway signage, cross-road culverts, and an underground storm sewer system. 

Using the Civil 3D and SketchUp models our team had already developed for the project, we were able to create a virtual reality model of the proposed roundabout which was used to provide a realistic experience of the proposed improvements during the design process.
