A letter will be sent to each resident prior to major construction beginning on their street.

Cones  Special Construction:

Meadowbrook Parkway and Rosewood Drive

The proposed plan for the redevelopment of the Meadowbrook Country Club preserves approximately two-thirds of the green space which would be owned as a county park by Johnson County.   All streets have on-street parking for easy access to the park amenities.

April 2017 -  Construction continues this spring with curb and paving in the months of March and April.  Final touches, to include sidewalk and landscaping, are anticipated to be installed in May.

McCrum Tennis Court

This contract consists of constructing a new court on top of the existing court at McCrum Park and using the existing fence.  This construction is similar to the construction completed at Harmon Park. This project will start on April 3, 2017 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-May, weather permitting.  The contractor will fence off the tennis court construction in order for the rest of the park to remain open.

April 2017 - Contractor is paving the courts this week.

Cones  2017 CARS Program

General Information

The County Board of Commissioners recognized that one of the keys to the success of Johnson County is in its major transportation corridors that connect the cities of Johnson County. In response to this need the Board created the County Assistance Road System (CARS) program.  This program provides funds to the cities of Johnson County to construct and maintain major arterials. The County pays 50% of the project’s construction and construction inspection costs. Cities are responsible for design, right-of-way, and utility relocation costs.

Cones 2017 UBAS Program

General Information

Cones2017 Street Resurfacing Program

General Information

This is a City program to repair existing streets throughout Prairie Village.  Every street is evaluated based on its existing condition and given a numerical rating.  This rating is derived from formulas that take into account the amount and type of distresses in the existing asphalt pavement. This program will replace existing damaged or deteriorated concrete curb, sidewalks (where there are currently sidewalks), some driveways, new sidewalk where there is none and updating ADA (American’s with Disabilities Act) pedestrian ramps. The existing asphalt pavement will either be:

  1. Reconstructed full depth, or
  2. Mill pavement between two and three inches then resurfaced with two or three inches of asphalt. Full depth pavement repairs will be performed as necessary.

Below is the list of streets, and their proposed improvements.  Please note that this list (and the proposed treatments) is only tentative and that streets may be deleted or added based on budgetary restrictions

Cones2017 MicroSurfacing/Crack Seal Program

General Information

Construction Cost: $312,000
Start Date: Summer 2017
Completion Date: Fall 2017
Contractor: To be determined

Crack Seal is a hot applied flexible rubberized sealant used to seal cracks in the pavement to prevent water from entering the base and sub-grade.  Sealing cracks and joints extends the service life of the pavement.  Streets will not have to be closed for crack sealing; therefore no notification will be given.  Crack Seal is completed in the fall when the cracks have had time to expand to allow the material to enter the cracks entirely. 

Micro Surfacing is a mixture of emulsified (liquid-like) asphalt, aggregate, admixtures, cement and water that is applied in a thin coat as a maintenance tool to assist in preserving the existing asphalt pavement.  The material cures by chemical and water evaporation.  It helps seal the existing surface and has a life span of approximately seven to ten years.  It is not considered a substitute for reconstructing or resurfacing the street, but rather a less costly solution in prolonging the existing pavement until major work is necessary and as funding becomes available.  Micro Surfacing will be completed in early August, 2017.  Residents will be notified with a letter in advance of street closures.  A door hanger will also be distributed 24 to 48 hours in advance of any street closing. 

Work areas to be determined.
