Main Street Viaduct Over KC Terminal Railway

This Kansas City Missouri project – Main Street vault repairs and viaduct ramp removal – was part of the revival of downtown Kansas City, built in conjunction with the Kansas City Streetcar project and to support a new hotel within the popular Crossroads District.

Phase one entailed the demolition and removal of the Main Street – Walnut viaduct off ramp and the installation of a new retaining wall along Main Street and a new pedestrian sidewalk. Phase two encompassed structural repairs to the East Main Street vaults along local businesses with the installation of a new metal deck and safety barrier curb.
The project provides residents and visitors an improved walking path on the East and West side of Main Street along the new streetcar rail just south of Kansas City’s Union Station. The project was designed to help the flow of traffic, vehicular and pedestrian, more suitably around the newly installed rail car system and the Crossroads District. It also made way for a new downtown hotel site.

Major Scopes of work included the demolition of the Walnut Street-Main Street off ramp, with the installation of a 530 SY retaining wall, sidewalks, guard rail, safety barrier, metal decking, fire hydrant relocation, and the repairs to existing vault beams and slabs.

Construction on Main Street Viaduct began in December, 2014. Mega Industries Corporation self-performed 73% of the contract.

North Indiana Avenue Improvement & Culvert Replacement, Kansas City, MO

The project removed and replaced a deteriorated bridge and 1042 linear feet of roadway. The new bridge is 54′ by 11′ and features an arch structure made with precast concrete. Installation of the bridge footing required 25 feet of excavation.  Because of the extensive excavation, the ground had to be stabilized with temporary shoring. Additional improvements included channel realignment with rock and erosion control blankets to improve the channel flow. Extensive coordination with water, sanitary, natural gas and other utilities was required.

The new street included numerous improvements including curbs, storm sewers, lighting, railing around the bridge, sidewalks, ADA ramps, full depth asphalt, new drive approaches and permanent signage.

Middle Blue Watershed Green Solutions Pilot, Kansas City, MO, Water Services Department

The City of Kansas City, MO, Water Services Department is implementing a pilot project to measure and evaluate the performance of green solutions within a portion of the Middle Blue River Basin. This pilot project is believed to be the largest project using green solutions for combined sewer overflow control currently being planned for construction in the United States. It represents just one component of the City’s commitment to use green solutions to control runoff as part of the Overflow Control Plan that was submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources in January 2009.

The project covers approximately 100 acres and utilizes several methods to capture the stormwater prior to entering the combined sewer system, including rain gardens, porous concrete and stormwater planters. The project required the removal and replacement of the existing roadways, sidewalks and driveways with porous concrete to capture the stormwater into collection tanks for storage until the stormwater is released later into the combined sewer system.

Box Culvert Repair at Searcy Creek, MoDOT

Prior to construction, this area on Highway 210 had two box culverts separated by a 105 foot open ravine. This area was deteriorated and prone to flooding after heavy rains which was causing the roadway to fail. In 30 days Mega Industries removed 700 cubic yards of unsuitable subgrade, backfilled with rock, connected the box culverts and then covered the box culverts. The once eye-sore area has become nearly invisible to the public after the newly constructed box culvert was covered with dirt and grass seed was planted.

Contract Price: $452,572
