The Redline Central Final draws over 800 BMX racers from the Central region which includes Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and Oklahoma. BMX racing is an Olympic sport and continues to gain popularity and new riders every year.

The event is open to the public and admission is only five dollars ($5.00) per person. The Raytown BMX Board would like to thank the City of Raytown, the Raytown Parks and Recreation Department and the track’s great volunteers for their support, dedication and hard work to make this event possible.

Public Works
Building renovations continued this week with interior finish work, exterior paint preparation and entry vestibule construction. KCP&L is scheduled to install the new electrical service as early as today, but should be completed next week. Once the new electrical service is installed the roof and guttering can be completed. The project has advanced enough to allow staff to frame-out the replacement sign room.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has contracted with APAC Kansas Inc. and KTU Constructors for the replacement of two bridges over 350 Highway at 67th Street and Blue Ridge Boulevard. Both bridges will be closed and detours established, information can be found at http://www.modot.mo.gov/kansascity/major_projects/Safe_and_Sound_Jackson.htm. The current schedule is for construction to start on July 22nd.

The first phase of the annual pavement management project started this week with the concrete contractor. Replacement of selected concrete pavement; sidewalk, curb and gutter began around by Minor Smith Park and will then work from the north end of the city to the south end of the city. The contractor has 45 days to complete the project.

The cost of fuel dropped significantly this week; average cost was $3.18 for diesel and $3.06 for unleaded.
