General Overview 

Cherokee Drive will be rehabilitated as part of the 2018 Residential Street Rehabilitation Program with a mill and overlay, new sidewalks, and new curb and gutter where needed.  The existing Y intersection is being proposed to be improved to a T intersection with a new area for the island fountain.

This project is administered by the Public Works Department. Please contact Melissa Prenger, Sr. Project Manager (mprenger@pvkansas.com) if you have any questions or concerns.

Public Meeting

Wednesday, August 22
5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Prairie Village Community Center - 7720 Mission Road

Cherokee Drive will be rehabilitated as part of the 2018 Residential Street Rehabilitation Program with a mill and overlay, new sidewalks, and new curb and gutter where needed.  The existing Y intersection is being proposed to be improved to a T intersection with a new area for the island fountain.  This new intersection will be safer pedestrians and motorists.  Please come to the open house public meeting to discuss this proposed improvement.

This intersection improvement will also provide an opportunity for a new fountain area that can be easily accessed by the residents.  Recognizing that this island and its garden are important to the surrounding community, we have two options for the potential configuration.  

Project Updates

September 7:  City Staff would like to thank all of the residents for their comments regarding this improvement.  On September 4th the Governing Body voted to not construct the geometric improvement and instructed staff to investigate other measures to employ at this intersection to encourage motorists to stop.  Staff will bring those measures to the Governing Body in the future.
