North Hwy 13 Corridor Study
What's Happening Now:
Travel Survey: Please take our travel survey to help us understand how you use and avoid the North Hwy 13 Corridor
Online Comment Card: Please use this online comment card to submit feedback to the project team at any point.
Responses to our travel survey will provide critical insights into the way local residents are using, and avoiding, the Hwy 13 corridor. In this survey, residents will be asked to provide information on the trips taken along Hwy 13, or trips where travel on Hwy 13 was avoided. Questions will focus on trip origins (where it starts), destinations (where it ends), and roads traveled. There will also be questions about whether residents travel with a cell phone.
Combined, this information will understand the true demand for travel along the Hwy 13 Corridor. With these insights, the project team will be better able to understand how traffic counts will grow in the future. Please complete our Travel Survey by December 17.
The existing diverging diamond interchange at I-44 and MO 13 was completed in June 2009. The current configuration was selected to facilitate the large volume of left-turning traffic onto I-44. In conjunction with the construction of the diverging diamond, changes were made at the intersection of Norton Rd, to the north, and Evergreen St and Golden Palace, to the south. Today, the traffic queue exiting WB I-44 extends into mainline I-44 traffic and traffic delays of up to 20 minutes are experienced by SB MO 13 drivers. The goal of this study to identify improvements to the existing interchange or identify alternative interchange designs.
