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.

Construction Cost: $2,225,000
Start Date: July 2018
Completion Date: Fall 2018 
Contractor: O'Donnell and Sons Construction

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.  

Cherokee (71st Street to 75th Street) 

71st and Cherokee Intersection Improvement: Council decided not to make geometric improvements to this intersection at this time.

New sidewalk in area of utility relocation, complete curb replacement and mill/overlay.
South Side: Construction complete and ready for backfill and sod.
North Side: Concrete work will be complete the week of September 24th.  Driveways were completed Monday, September 24th and can be accessed by residents after 3 days of cure time.

Mill and Overlay for the entire street will be the first week of October.  A flyer will be distributed prior to the mill and overlay operation. 

Oct 17: Paving operations are complete. Sod operations will resume this week. 

Oct 3: Paving activities are continuing this week.  Extensive patching has delayed the surface asphalt by a few days.  However, this patching a necessary for a good base of asphalt.  Crews will return to complete the surface asphalt as weather permits.  Also, today sod was being placed in the vicinity of 7200 Cherokee. 

Oct 1:  The contractor will be deep patching the base asphalt today and resurfacing the asphalt tomorrow, weather permitting.  The speed tables on Cherokee will be replaced in the next week and at their same locations.  The south/west side of Cherokee is scheduled to be sodded by the middle of this week and the north/east side is scheduled to be backfilled and sodded by the end of the week.

Street Repair

2018 MicroSurfacing/Crack Seal Program

Construction Cost: $ 312,000
Start Date: October 1, 2018
Completion Date: November 1, 2018
Contractor: Vance Brothers

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

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.

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 October.  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.
