This is part of the Old Wire Improvement Project, a multi-phase project on the east side of the “Mayor’s Box,” which will create an integrated network of east/west and north/south roadways around the perimeter of the City, connected with miles of trails and sidewalks. The Old Wire project includes an overhaul of the intersection at Mission Boulevard and Old Wire, and improvements will also be made from Mission Boulevard, past Gulley Park to Old Missouri Road. When completed, the Old Wire project will improve traffic flow, allow for protected movements and provide safer pedestrian and bicycle trails along the roadway. The first phases of this project were funded through the 2006 Transportation Bond. You can learn more about those phases here.

Design is scheduled to begin in 2020.
When Will it be Completed?
Construction is scheduled to be completed by 2022.
