"THE OVERALL PROJECT REALLY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. NOT ONLY DID THEY HELP US ESTABLISH A STRONG VISION, THEY DEVELOPED IMPLEMENTATION RECOMMENDATIONS AND ASSISTED IN SECURING FEDERAL CONSTRUCTION FUNDING."

Serving as a primary gateway into the City, this new vision creates an opportunity for alternate transportation options for cyclists, pedestrians and residents.
Confluence created a vision for revitalizing the two-mile Burlington Corridor through the City of North Kansas City. This corridor is one of three primary roadways connecting Kansas City’s Northland area over the Missouri River into Downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
Through community involvement efforts, our team developed a comprehensive program by optimizing and narrowing existing traffic lane configurations to create the Kansas City Metropolitan Area’s first “Cycle Track.” Integration of transit stations/infrastructure, on-street vehicular parking, widened sidewalks and pedestrian amenities were other key considerations incorporated into planned improvements. The aesthetic character of the corridor’s streetscape appearance was planned to emulate a modern industrial theme that honors the historic use of the corridor while also promoting continued revitalization activities and redevelopment of adjacent properties.
