Middle Blue River
Green Infrastructure

Kansas City, Missouri

Vireo was a critical part of the team that developed the design and construction documents for over 200 rain gardens, bioretention and other landscape designs for the Middle Blue River Basin Green Solutions Project (MBRB). MBRB is a cutting-edge project that covers an entire urban watershed, creating urban streetscapes that overlap with residents’ front yards to test the effectiveness of using green solutions to help reduce overflows and flooding. The result is an exceptional example of combining strong landscape architectural design with engineering for a more sustainable result.
