Kirkwood Road Signal Optimization and Interconnect and South Kirkwood Road - Nipher Middle School Safe Routes to School (Construction)
This project includes the upgrade of 11 signalized intersections on Kirkwood Road from Big Bend Blvd to Manchester Rd including a fiber optic interconnect. A Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) will replace the existing traffic signal for the pedestrian crosswalk near Hollywood Ln. The sidewalk curb ramps and signals will also be constructed to meet ADA requirements. A 5' wide ADA compliant sidewalk will be added or reconstructed along the east side of Kirkwood Road from Chester Ave to Nipher Middle School. The projects are partially funded by the CMAQ and TAP federal programs. You can visit the Kirkwood Rd Signal Project page for more information.

Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) will replace the existing traffic signal for the pedestrian crosswalk near Keysor Elementary School. The project limits are Manchester Rd. south to W. Adams Ave. This project is partially funded by the STP federal program. Construction is anticipated to start in winter of 2019.
Manchester Road Enhancements (Design)
MoDOT is currently designing a project which includes resurfacing the roadway and ADA compliant sidewalks from Lindbergh Blvd in Kirkwood to Big Bend Blvd in Maplewood. The City of Kirkwood is partnering with MoDOT to provide enhancements to the project including a 5’ wide green buffer between the sidewalk and roadway, pedestrian lighting and bus shelters within the City limits and a bike lane and other safety improvements at the Woodlawn Avenue intersection. More information about the project schedule can be found on MoDOT's project page.
Quan Avenue Reconstruction (Design)
The project intends to include the reconstruction of the street pavement, improved intersection geometrics and replacement of the traffic signals, and reconstruction or addition of 5' wide ADA compliant sidewalks on Quan Ave. A public meeting will be held on April 2, 2019 to discuss the project with the community.
