Lake Winnebago Lake & Community Expansion

Lake Winnebago, MO

RIC is the engineering program manager and design engineer on the Lake Winnebago Expansion project. Developer and land owner, Randy Spalding, selected RIC to be the lead consulting firm to help him achieve his dream of turning his 420 acre property just south of Lake Winnebago into an extension of the lake and subdivision. The lake and community expansion increased the overall lake surface area by 54% and added 323 residential lots as well as 10 acres of commercial space.

The existing Missouri State Highway 291 (M‑291) also had to be widened and the intersection at 167th Street had to be redesigned to increase capacity. The M291 project included the design of the intersection of MoDOT Route 291 and 167th Street in Lake Winnebago, MO. Design included the widening of ½ mile of Route 291 to accommodate the addition of a Southbound left-turn lane and a Northbound right-turn lane onto 167th Street. It also included the widening of 167th Street to accommodate dedicated left and right turn lanes onto Route 291.
