KCMetro Specifications
- DOCUMENTS -

The Kansas City Metropolitan Chapter of the American Public Works Association maintains a comprehensive set of construction specifications and design criteria for public works construction projects in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Individual sections are updated on a periodic basis by committees of chapter members and industry representatives. The specifications were written to provide good quality infrastructure using locally available materials whenever possible, and at a cost made lower by the use of a common specification.

These documents are used in whole or part by a majority of the public agencies in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. You do not have to be a member of APWA to purchase or use the documents. Many private agencies utilize the Kansas City Metropolitan APWA specifications for private construction, and many copies have been sold to agencies outside the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Please note that it is the Policy of the KC Metro Chapter of APWA to protect the integrity of these documents and editable files (Word or CADD formats) are not released to either a Private or Public entity.

If you have an interest in serving on a specification committee or have other questions regarding the specifications or design criteria, please contact Dena Mezger, P.E. at Dena.Mezger@CityOfLS.net
