Indian Creek – Blue River Confluence Trail Wins ACEC-Missouri Grand Award
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Missouri has awarded TranSystems a Grand Award for the Indian Creek – Blue River Confluence Trail. 

TranSystems led the planning and design of this 1.5-mile project, linking together the Indian Creek and Blue River trails. The result is a cohesive trail system, which connects communities around Kansas City in both Kansas and Missouri.
 
The scenic trail was designed with railroad and interstate clearances, elevations for hydraulics, offsets to utilities, alignment geometry to meet Federal bicycle design standards and ADA accessibility through unstable and environmentally sensitive geographies. The trail spans beneath three active railroad bridges and one interstate bridge and reaches the banks of the Blue River and Indian Creek.
 
For the project, TranSystems assisted with:
 
  • Project Management
  • Trail Planning and Design
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Storm Drainage Design and Best Management Practices
  • Structural Design
  • Hydraulic Modeling

“The City is very pleased with the finished product,” said Richard Allen, Project Manager for City of Kansas City, Mo. “This trail is one of the most scenic in Kansas City and will be very popular with its connections to the Kansas City and Overland Park trail systems.”
