RESOLUTION NO. 190541

 

Expressing the Council’s support for Operation Green Light of the Mid-America Regional Council to develop a process that evaluates the current system and new technology available for traffic signal synchronization on Missouri State Highway 152 from Shoal Creek Parkway to the city limits of Kansas City adjacent to the City of Liberty and requesting the submission of a corresponding budget.

 

WHEREAS, Operation Green Light is currently responsible for traffic signal synchronization on Missouri Highway 152 and is using signal-timing technology financed by Kansas City contributions and federal funds; and

 

WHEREAS, in the year 2010, Operation Green Light conducted a process that changed part of Missouri Highway 291 in Lee’s Summit from a signal timing system to the use of adaptive technology. This change was objectively evaluated on behalf of Operation Green Light by the Midwest Research Institute; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council desires that Operation Green Light design an appropriate process to evaluate and upgrade traffic signal synchronization on Missouri Highway 152 and then engage an objective party to evaluate the traffic signal synchronization; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City expresses its support for Operation Green Light.

 

Section 2. That the Council requests that Operation Green Light, through the Mid-American Regional Council, provide a proposed budget to the City Manager to enable the following:

 

a.                   To develop a process to evaluate the current system and available new technologies to improve traffic signal synchronization on Missouri State Highway 152 from Shoal Creek Parkway to the city limits of Kansas City adjacent to the City of Liberty.

 

b.                  To select a strategy to achieve implementation of said improvements.
