Mission Road (+ more) Construction

Posted by Bonnie Limbird

Hello, Prairie Village!

Johnson County Wastewater will be starting their Mission Road sanitary main replacement project on October 19th. The construction of these improvements will impact property owners and traffic.

The main replacement will primarily be in the northbound lanes on Mission Road from 84th (the creek behind Corinth Elementary) to 93rd Street.  They will have a roadway crossing at 83rd just east of Mission Road to get the main from the back property of Public Works to the creek area of Corinth Elementary.

The main replacement on Mission Road will require the two northbound lanes to be closed and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction by using the southbound lanes.

This project is a partnership with the city of Leawood and Johnson County Wastewater.

There will be additional work addressing pavement maintenance in the Summer/Fall of 2021.

Thanks to our Prairie Village Public Works team for keeping us up-to-date!

Also, we’re only 14 days into our 60-day 71st Street shutdown for the culvert replacement.

Lastly, by my math, the State Line closure from 71st to 74th should have been over last Friday, and it looks like there’s still a fair amount of work to be done (at least cosmetically), so I’ve reached out to Public Works to ask how much longer. I’ll update here when I hear. Update: the project inspector thinks it should take about 2 more weeks as of 10/13/2020. Second Update: The project manager has indicated that construction is scheduled to be substantially complete by the end of next week, October 23rd. That means “open to traffic and less impact to homeowners”.  Completion will most likely be another week or two for items such as final grading behind the retaining walls and placement of sod. We will be back next year as we will be working with Kansas City, Missouri for a much-needed mill and overlay of this area. Third Update: PV side is complete, but the gas company on the MO side needs a few more days before they can open as of 10/22/2020.

Let me know if you have any questions! 😁
