2012-1459 - Revised
- 4/22/2014: APPLICANT: Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT)
PROJECT LOCATION: This project will replace the northbound (Platte Purchase Bridge) and the southbound (Fairfax Bridge) bridges on U.S. Highway 69 spanning the Missouri River in Platte County, Missouri and in Wyandotte County, Kansas.
ACTIVITY: MODOT proposes to replace both the northbound bridge and the southbound bridge at this location. The project is a design-build process where selected contractors will submit a bridge design for contract approval. Therefore, at this time, the final bridge design and the total loss/impacts to waters of the United States (WOUS) is unknown. The approved design may be a dual bridge concept as currently exists or it may be a single bridge with sufficient width to carry both northbound and southbound traffic. MODOT has tasked the design teams to develop the “best value” while meeting the traffic requirements of today and into the future.

2014-04-18 CWA Proposed Rule
- 4/18/2014: On 21 April 2014, the USEPA and the Corps of Engineers (Corps) are publishing for public comment a proposed rule defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA), in light of the U.S. Supreme Court cases in U.S. v. Riverside Bayview, Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (SWANCC), and Rapanos v. United States (Rapanos). The proposed rule was developed to enhance protection for the nation’s public health and aquatic resources, and increase CWA program predictability and consistency by increasing clarity as to the scope of “waters of the United States” protected under the Act.

- 4/11/2014: APPLICANT: BFA, Inc (representing Walmart)
PROJECT LOCATION: Tract in northeast quarter of Section 14, Township 47 north, Range 33 west, Jackson County, Missouri.
ACTIVITY: The applicant proposes to redevelop an existing commercial structure with the associated infrastructure such as roads and parking lots. The proposed project would redevelop the existing Sam’s Club into the Walmart Supercenter Store 6580-00 – Grandview, Missouri to provide an updated and larger commercial shopping facility with the associated infrastructure. Since the initial public notice for this project, the stormwater plan for the redevelopment site has been modified. The primary changes are the omission of the underground detention cells, which were to be located on the northwestern portion of the site, and the addition of a stormwater detention basin to be constructed to the south of the subject site.
Expiration date: 5/2/2014
- 4/10/2014: APPLICANT: Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT)
PROJECT LOCATION: In the Maries River, Section 24, Township 42 north, Range 10 west, Osage County, Missouri.
ACTIVITY: MoDOT constructed a mitigation bank in 2009 to provide compensatory mitigation for stream impacts from future MoDOT projects, including Route 50 east and 63 south. The bank was created through replacing a 240-foot section of low water crossing with multiple open bottom structures, along with complete removal of an older upstream crossing. MoDOT has been working closely with the Osage County Commission to develop a plan to modify the bridge over the Maries River to help address debris concerns at the bridge during high water events. Four modifications are proposed to the existing structure.
