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.

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.

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.
