Project Description:

Blue River Road is located between County Highway 8-S (also referred to as Bannister Road) and I-435. This project will focus on the effectiveness of reopening the closed road opposed to repurposing it as a bike path or pedestrian walkway.

Roadway improvements include:

  • New pavement
  • Curb and gutter
  • Sidewalk
  • Bike path
  • Storm sewer

Traffic Impact:

Blue River Road will be closed indefinitely between 71 highway and Prospect and between Bannister to Red Bridge Road due to soil stability and slope failure.
