Mission 68th Drainage


Project Overview

The city hired an engineering firm to study the area of 68th Street and Mission Road after recent flooding of the roadway and adjacent properties. This study will evaluate solutions to the roadway and property flooding. The study also evaluates the opportunity to receive stormwater funding from Johnson County’s stormwater management program. 

Project Updates
