Red Bridge Road & Bridge

Lee’s Summit, Missouri

Vireo developed designs for Red Bridge Road, between Holmes and Blue River Road, which also included public involvement, irrigation design, green infrastructure (BMP’s), and aesthetics of the bridge. Vireo also assisted with tie-ins to existing facilities and preliminary plans further east from Blue River Road to Grandview Road.

Working with local historians and the National Park Service, the design team celebrated the local history of the 3-Trails by integrating historical markers in the bridge and streetscape. Because this section of roadway is designated as a historic boulevard, it was vital that the designs spoke to the idealized landscape character of Kansas City’s boulevard system.
