Downtown Lee's Summit

For a year and a half, getting around down­town Lee's Summit sucked. Construction diverted traffic from main thoroughfares, and the detours made it hard to get to our favorite quaint boutiques and bars. But the temporary headache was worth it. The spring completion of a $13 million streetscaping project has left the area easier — and more enjoyable — than ever to traverse, especially on foot. Sidewalks are wider, pretty trees grow and streetlights burn bright. So at 5 p.m., when other downtowns are dead, Lee's Summit's still hops, often to the sounds of outdoor concerts and other events. And thanks to the power and sewer updates included in the streetscaping project, thousands can safely converge during local festivals. The dream of a revitalized downtown has been achieved!
