There could be some changes coming to I-29 in Platte County, and Kansas City, Missouri, officials are looking for the public's input on the proposed multi-million dollar improvements.

The city, in partnership with the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, is holding public meetings to present proposed improvements to the I-29 and Tiffany Springs Parkway Interchange and the replacement of the Old Tiffany Springs Road Bridge over I-29.

The meetings are Tuesday morning from 7:30-9 a.m. and again from 4-5:30 p.m.at the Platte County Resource Center, 11724 NW Plaza Circle, Suite 400, Kansas City, Mo. The meeting will be an open house with the proposed improvements displayed, and officials will be available to answer questions.

No formal presentation will be made, and residents and business owners are encouraged to attend as their schedule allows, the city said in a statement.

The I-29 and Tiffany Springs Parkway interchange will be reconstructed as a diverging diamond interchange. This $9.4 million project receives funding from the Missouri Department of Transportation, the Kansas City Aviation Department and the TIF Commission of Kansas City. The project is scheduled to be under construction in 2013.

The Old Tiffany Springs Road Bridge over I-29 will be reconstructed as a four-lane street north of the existing bridge and will complete upgrades to Old Tiffany Springs Road between Congress Avenue and Ambassador Drive. Officials say that this $9 million project is not funded at this time but would be funded with TIF funds generated from additional commercial retail development along Ambassador Drive.

"Without the KCI Corridor TIF, last year's improvement to enhance Barry Road from I-29 to Saint Luke's would not have happened, and we would not have seen these improvements to the interchange and the new bridge over I-29," said Second District City Councilman Russ Johnson in a statement.

Since the KCI Corridor TIF was created in 1999, the TIF plan has funded the construction of North Ambassador Drive from Barry Road to Northwest Tiffany Springs Parkway; North Congress Avenue from Route 152 to I-29; Old Tiffany Springs Road from North Amity Avenue to North Hull Avenue; Northwest Skyview Avenue from North Ambassador Avenue to Northwest Tiffany Springs Parkway; the interchange of Route 152 and North Ambassador Drive; and the widening of Barry Road east of I-29.

In addition to completing the new bridge over I-29, additional phases of the TIF plan will improve Old Tiffany Springs Road to North Green Hills Road and improve North Green Hills Road north of Route 152.
