Background:

In support of the Independence Marketplace Shopping Center at E. 42nd Street and Noland Road, the Developer has requested that the City allow modification of the Y- intersection of E. 42nd Street and E. 42nd Terrace to enhance the drive approaches to two development tracts. Vacation of the right-of-way, reserving appropriate setbacks for City use, will allow for enhanced access to the property and improve driving safety at the intersection. A portion of E. 42nd Street will be closed and removed to allow drive approaches immediately adjacent to the former island. Traffic will now flow around the former island to the south with limited traffic impediments and improve overall traffic flow at Noland Road and E. 42nd Terrace and at Noland Road and E. 42nd Street. Plans for construction will be submitted by the developer to the City in accordance with the City's standard development policies and procedures. Improvements will be constructed by the developer and inspected by the City.


Fiscal Impact:

This work will be performed by the developer.
