CARS Program (for Arterial Streets)

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 arterial roadways. 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.

 2019 CARS Program Contractor:JM Fahey
 Roe Avenue, 63rd Street to 67th Street Start Date: June 20, 2019 
 Construction Cost:$1,000,000 Completion Date: Fall 2019

 The project will consist of full curb replacement and street reconstruction.

Email the project team at if you have questions or concerns.


Oct 18: The roadway is now open.  Thank you for your patience during construction. 

Oct 7:  Crews are placing sod this week and will place the surface lift of asphalt mid week. The past few weeks crews have been focused on dressing the grade for sod and finishing up the remaining locations of concrete placement.  Thank you for your patience during these improvements.  We anticipate the roadway to be opened next week, weather permitting.

Aug 19: Construction operations discovered unsuitable subgrade material throughout this portion of Roe Avenue. Subgrade is the foundation for the pavement section and it is important to stabilize it for long term success of the construction process. 

We have an option on Roe that is not available on residential streets and that is cement treatment for stabilization.  The contractor will be treating with cement on Tuesday and Wednesday, weather permitting.  This work does create DUST as it tills material into the unsuitable soil to stabilize the subgrade.  We advise the residents in the area to close windows and garages during these work days.   

Aug 2: Roadway Removal has started.  This process includes milling the asphalt and removal of the subgrade.  Please remember that this removal will have drop offs at the cross streets.    

July 12: Crews have  completely reconstructed the sidewalk on both sides and will begin tear out of the curb on both sides beginning Monday next week.  This work will happen quickly and impact driveway access for the residents facing Roe.  Crews will maintain access as long as possible; however, they will be back with curb pours before the end of the week.

June 24: Crews are on site today sawcutting the curb. Demo begins this week on sidewalk and west side curb. East side demo of the sidewalk will not impact after hours driveway access.

June 21: The road closure is set up and construction will begin on Monday. No work today due to weather.

June  13:     Public Meeting for adjacent residents

  Community Center | 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm | June 18th

Apr 15: WaterOne will begin work on 4 waterline crossings on April 22nd.  This will upgrade their facilities prior to the City roadway improvements.  Daily road closures will be necessary during this 4-5 week construction period.

Apr 1: The project will be ready for contractors to bid on this month. 

Jan 29: The project is currently in design. Staff is coordinating utility relocations at this time.



Residential Street Program



Email the project team at

 This email goes to the project team at the Contractor and the City staff.
 We work together to get your concern addressed in a timely fashion.


General Information
This is a City program to repair existing streets.  Every street is evaluated based on existing condition and given a numerical rating derived from formulas that take into account the amount and type of distresses in the 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

During the hot summer months temporary restoration in the right of way will be seed.  The contractor will be back in the fall for permanent restoration of sod.  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. 

Completed Streets:

Windsor (79th to Somerset)                          Norwood (79th to Somerset)

Granada (79th to 82nd St)                            Beverly (Tomahawk to 81st St)

Dearborn (81st to 82nd) | Dearborn N CDS    77th Terr (Lamar to City Limits)

Cedar Drive (83rd to 85th)                            84th Terr (Juniper to Nall)

Aug 19:  Curb work is almost complete, waiting for new curb inlet.  Driveway work will be complete this week. Mill and overlay operations anticipated next week

On Street Public Meeting August 7th at 5:30 mid block. Removals will begin week of August 12.

 Belinder (73rd to 75th)

 Oct 7: 71 to 73 project will be designed this fall with construction next summer.

Sept:  Council approved new sidewalk construction on the east side of Belinder. 

Aug 19: 71 to 73 Project is complete with restoration in the fall.

    73 to 75 sidewalk installation is on agenda for Council this evening.

Aug 2: 71 to 73 Milling and Paving operations start today. Milling will be complete and paving                will be Monday if no deep patching is required.

  73 to 75 Sidewalk comments are in.  Thank you to the residents for returning the    comment card.  Staff will continue to update you before we go to Council for this discussion.


Public Meeting: July 17th at 5:30 pm School Parking Lot

This project will be broken in to 2 phases in order to address improvements in front of the school during summer break. The contractor, O’Donnell and Sons Construction, will start street improvements on Belinder from 71st to 73rd almost immediately, beginning on or around July 22nd, weather permitting. Preparatory activities such as mobilization into the area and sawcutting of the curbs may begin a day prior to the main body of construction.  These preparatory items should not impact access.

Phase 2, 73rd to 75th has been delayed due to utility relocations.  This phase may still be constructed this year with a storm pipe work, mill/overlay and a new sidewalk installation on the east side.  Belinder north of 73rd and south 75th Place has sidewalk on both sides.  However, in these two blocks that are in close proximity to the school, Belinder has sidewalk on the west side and no sidewalk on the east side.  We will be discussing this sidewalk installation process at the public meeting.  Sidewalk will be constructed 5' wide at the back of curb.



UBAS Program

Concerns/questions?  Email the project team at

General Information

2019 Program Contractor:McAnany Construction
Start Date:June 1, 2019
Construction Cost: $400,000 Completion Date: Fall 2019

Ultra-thin bonded asphalt surface (UBAS) is an asphalt surface treatment used to help extend the life of a road by placing a thin overlay onto a prepared asphalt surface.  The overlay can disperse water quickly off the surface, which reduces roadway spray from vehicles and provides greater visibility in wet weather. 

The contractor will patch the roadway as needed, mill the entire surface to remove roughness and apply the UBAS with a paving machine similar to asphalt overlay.  Access may be impacted to your driveway momentarily as the paving machine goes by the area.

MicroSurfacing/Crack Seal Program

Concerns/questions?  Email the project team at  This email goes to 4 members of the team at the City and Contractor.

General Information
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. 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.

The Contractor will be working on several streets throughout Prairie Village on the same day so we cannot tell you exactly what time the crew will begin on your street.  The first street they work on will be at 8:00 a.m.  After completing that street, they will move to others and will stop Micro Surfacing very early in the afternoon to allow the streets time to dry before the end of the workday.  Please keep in mind that weather is a factor in the schedule and drying time.  The material is very sensitive to water so the weather is monitored closely for pop-up storms. 

There are two very important issues at hand with micro surface:

  1. It is sensitive to water. Please turn off your sprinkler systems the day of the scheduled Micro Surfacing.
  2. Driving on the surface is not permitted until the micro surface is cured; for this reason the street must be closed for the day. Any one driving around the barricades or driving on the street prior to it being opened may be subject to damages.

Be on the lookout for changeable message boards and orange flyers 48 hours prior to work starting to let you know when the micro surface is scheduled for your street. 


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.  We anticipate the Crack Seal Program to begin in late October.

Please note that streets on the map may change based on available funding. 

2019 Micro-Crack Program  Contractor: Vance Brothers
   Start Date: May 2019
 Construction Cost: $312,000  Completion Date: November 2019
