11/21/2014 - City and County Partner in Grant Application for Katy Trail Overpass
The City of Sedalia is partnering with Pettis County to apply for a transportation (TAP) grant and remove the overpass at Broadway near the Smith-Cotton Junior High School. The bridge is frequently hit by semi-trucks on Broadway that are too tall to pass underneath. If the grant is approved for approximately $250,000, the two bridges would be removed and replaced with a single KATY trail bridge.
The internationally known KATY bicycle trail, which extends across the State of Missouri, crosses Broadway at this location. The City and County are partnering in order to share the 21% grant match. The State Parks Department, which oversees the Katy Trail, and MoDOT, both support the County/City grant application.
