Kansas City Streetcar
The addition of the KC Streetcar to downtown Kansas City has connected the City and its people, spurring additional development and providing transit opportunities for residents and visitors. The Streetcar line has experienced record ridership numbers since its opening, leading to its future expansion south.
TREKK has played a role on every phase of the Streetcar’s development to date. Along the initial 2.5-mile Main Street route, we provided CCTV inspection to determine the condition of the stormwater and sanitary sewer lines in the roadway. We also provided topographic and mobile LiDAR survey, construction staking and utility coordination, and continue to provide topographic and mobile LiDAR survey as part of the Streetcar’s planned Southern Extension from Union Station to 51st Street and Northern Extension from Grand Boulevard to Berkley Riverfront Park.
TREKK also served as civil site designer for the LEED Gold Certified Singleton Yard Vehicle Maintenance Facility. This facility sits on 1.36 acres and houses the Streetcar’s maintenance and operations center. TREKK designed the facility’s storm sewer and drainage system, parking lot, sidewalk and site utilities; provided grading plans; relocated an existing bike/pedestrian shared use path; and provided topographic survey. We integrated stormwater Best Management Practices, including permeable pavers, infiltration trenches and inlet filters, into the design to meet LEED Gold and Envision Platinum credits.
