Some streets within the city are private. They belong to the business or housing development and are not maintained by the City.
In addition, streets such as 23rd Street, which is actually Missouri Highway 78, are not maintained by the City. The Missouri State Highway Department (MoDOT) is responsible for all snow removal, traffic signals, potholes and right-of-way clean up on roadways such as Highways 291, 24, 40 and 78, and Interstate 70. MoDOT also maintains Truman Road (Missouri Highway 12) from Spring to the west city limits.
A street cut occurs anytime the driving surface (pavement) has to be cut into and removed. This can be a large area such as the installation of a new water main under the street, or a small area such as a utility repair.
A right-of-way permit must be obtained for all street cuts.
A street closure may be necessary for repairs to the pavement, utility work, commercial construction projects or a block party.
A Right-of-Way Permit is required for all street closures including those that only block a portion of the street.
