Rock Island Corridor Study planning work is continuing on transportation options in the Rock Island Corridor. The Corridor Study focuses on a trail extending between the Blue River Trail, west of the Truman Sports Complex, to Pleasant Hill and eventually to the Katy Trail State Park across Missouri. The second in a series of community workshops was held on Wednesday, January 23rd. The workshop provided continued discussion and development of conceptual plans for each of the activity nodes along the corridor which includes the Raytown Central Business District (CBD). Findings from an economic analysis on the activity nodes were presented at the community workshop. The next community workshop will be held this spring. Staff will provide information on the date and location of the next community workshop when it is released. The Corridor Study is funded through a grant received by MARC. MARC is partnered with the cities of Raytown, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Greenwood, Pleasant Hill, as well as Jackson County and other community groups on the study.
