Union Station Western
Expansion
Kansas City, Missouri
Burns & McDonnell
Kansas City, Missouri
The center of civic and commercial
life early in the 20th century, Kansas
City's 1914-era Union Station needed
a massive upgrade. The project team's
solutions included a new vehicular
and pedestrian bridge that for the first
time connects the main building
directly to an adjacent parking garage,
a semicircular pedestrian plaza, a
raised and wide pedestrian walkway to
the building and a new 90,000-plussquare-foot outdoor event space for
concerts, festivals and other large
events. The project succeeded in both
renovating Union Station for the 21st
century and restoring its place as a
first-class regional transportation hub.

The Left Overloop
Lexington, Kentucky
Qk4
Louisville, Kentucky
Innovative redesign eliminated a
treacherous intersection where traffic
accidents occurred daily in the heart
of Kentucky's scenic horse farm
region. Constrained by nearby land
belonging to historic Calumet Farm
and the Keeneland Race Course, the
intersection included two precarious
curves that had become more
hazardous over time. Installing traffic
lights was deemed too obtrusive, and
multiple flyovers were too expensive.
The project team instead
incorporated a first-of-its-kind "left
overloop," which realigned the
interchange's existing right turn loop
into a left-turn overpass. The ramp
eliminated the traffic hazard at
significantly less cost than full
reconstruction while also meeting
the region's aesthetic concerns.

Space Launch System Test Stands
Huntsville, Alabama
Merrick & Company
Decatur, Georgia
Groundbreaking engineering has yielded two new launch stands critical for propulsion
tank testing prior to spaceflight. To validate that a rocket's liquid hydrogen and liquid
oxygen fuel tanks can handle the thrust loads and stresses of launch and travel, the
project team custom-designed 215-foot and 85-foot-tall test stands and associated
substructures that can withstand millions of pounds of thrust under a variety of test
scenarios. Unlike other similar structures worldwide, these new test stands can also be
relocated or reconfigured as propulsion system technology evolves.
