Johnson County To Be Hit Hard By Road Construction

Bookmark and Share
Kansas 10 highway will be reduced to one lane next week from 7:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday through Friday for a five mile stretch from Kansas 7 to I-435. The closed highways are part of a state-wide project to improve various roadways, and this particular improvement will cost $808,000.

The resurfacing of the road is planned on being completed sometime in mid-August. Other areas of K-10 will begin resurfacing in the coming weeks, including Woodland Road, Ridgeview Road, Renner Road and I-435. Since these interchanges will be completely closed, drivers will be forced to find an alternative route should they use these areas to enter or exit the highway.

There will be several other large roadway projects that will start in the area in the next month. U.S. 69 in Overland Park between 159th and 135th Street and U.S. 169 south of Olathe from 175th Street to 215th Street will start construction next month.

With the many closings in the area, it will be important for all Johnson County residents to follow the construction schedules to find alternative or faster routes around town.
