|  April 22, 2009 |

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and Paseo Corridor Constructors (PCC) Interstate 29/35 Connections “kcICON” Project team has received two honors for its corridor aesthetic design and community outreach efforts.

The kcICON Project’s corridor aesthetics package earned a “Design Un-built” award from the Prairie Gateway Chapter/American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). The award submittal described the theme for sound walls, the sound and retaining wall design elements, and the Front Street and Armour/Route 210 interchange aesthetic treatments. The Prairie Gateway Chapter of ASLA represents about 250 landscape architects from the Kansas City metro area and the state of Kansas.

The project team also received the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) 2009 PRIDE Award for its community relations work. The award submittal described MoDOT’s collaboration with a 12-member advisory group. The group received 20 of the 100 total project points to evaluate the architectural style and bridge design aesthetics proposed by competing design-build teams.

The $245 million kcICON project will reconstruct/rehabilitate 4.7 miles of Interstate 29/35 from just north of Route 210/Armour Road in North Kansas City into the northeast corner of the downtown Kansas City, Mo. freeway loop. The project includes improving outdated interchanges and the construction of the Christopher S. Bond Bridge – a new landmark, cable-stay Missouri River bridge.
