City Completes W. 76 Country Blvd Sidewalk Improvements

Public Works

In an effort to promote walkability as well as to continue to keep pedestrians safe along W. 76 Country Blvd, the City’s Public Works & Engineering Department has just completed a 400 foot stretch of needed sidewalk repairs at the intersection of W. 76 Country Blvd and Green Mtn. Drive going west.

This project leads directly back to the community-created Community 2030 plan, a policy manual created by the community for long-term goals and guidelines for the City to follow to enhance an inviting community and multi-faceted tourism economy. Under ‘Transportation’ (section 10) it states how important community leaders, stakeholders, and residents feel about improving the sidewalks for walkability and pedestrian safety along W. 76 Country Blvd. In part, it says “…Building an interconnected network of pedestrian accessible transportation promotes social, physical and economic health of any community.”

This project took 30 days to complete and consisted of removing the deteriorated and inadequate shoulder pavement and replacing it with a five foot wide concrete walkway. The project was funded by the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission’s (MHTC) W. 76 Country Blvd. relinquishment money. When the City took over this portion of W. 76 Country Blvd from the state, the MHTC agreed to pay the City over a period of 10-years for maintenance of the 5-mile corridor.

City Public Works crews will continue to remove and replace other area sidewalks around the City as budgets allow.

For questions regarding this project, please contact the City of Branson Engineering Department at 417-337-8559.
