INFRASTRUCTURE

155th St. Interchange

MoDOT completed reconstructing the 155th St. interchange in December 2017 with an innovative solution that will handle a larger volume of traffic, enhance the area for anticipated new development, while accommodating existing traffic in both Belton, Grandview and Kansas City.  The design is called a diverge-about.  It includes a diverging diamond and a roundabout.  It is the first of its kind in the state of Missouri.  In addition to providing smoother, more efficient traffic flow to this growing area, MoDOT constructed a dedicated shared use path for all non-motorized vehicles and pedestrian traffic.

Wastewater Treatment Plant and Pumping Station Upgrade

The City of Belton has completed its $11.5 million, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant and pumping station upgrade.

The plant represents a significant technological upgrade for the City of Belton’s wastewater treatment processes and features a new SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) system that alerts operators to potential problems with water pressure and flow, as well as equipment issues or malfunctions.

“Wastewater treatment provides an important public and environmental safety function, and this upgraded facility enables the city to keep closer tabs on operations, efficiency and capacity,” said Belton Public Works Director Michael Doi.

The upgraded wastewater treatment facility includes a new headworks building and influent pumping station, both of which replaced aging and outdated structures and were designed and constructed to accommodate projected flows outlined in the City’s Wastewater Treatment Master Plan.

The City utilized a low interest loan program offered by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ State Revolving Fund Program to pay for construction of the facility after voters approved a bond issue funding the project in April 2013.

Carollo Engineers designed the facility, and Foley Company served as general contractor.

Water Tower

In April 2013, the citizens of Belton approved revenue bonds to construct improvements to the drinking water and wastewater systems, including a new water tower, which is now located in Markey Park and is the largest water tower by volume in the State of Missouri. The new water tower benefits include:

• Increased ability to meet demands of the community in the near-
and the long-term, allowing the City to grow responsibly

• Improved safety of the community in regard to fire suppression

The City was successful in securing low interest loans from the State of Missouri to fund the $5.6 million water tower and associated water line upgrade project, saving millions of dollars in interest expenses over the next 20 years.
