Project Status Construction
Description Nieman Road will be narrowed to accommodate a three lane roadway.  This will allow more green space behind the curb to install a wide recreational trail on one side and wider sidewwalk on the other.  This project will also include streetscape items such as benches, landscaping, transit shelter, and other miscellaneous amentiies.  This project is included in the "Nieman Now" corridor project. 
Status Details The Governing Body approved a design contract with BHC Rhodes on November 14th, 2016. This project is scheduled for construction in 2018.  This project will be designed in conjunction with other storm sewer projects along the corridor so there will be public meetings throughout the design process.  The cooridor right of way study is attached.

A public/neighborhood meeting was held on July 20th to discuss streetscape concepts and the preliminary plans.

Preliminary plans were approved the Governing Body at the September 11, 2017 CIty Council meeting.  The current preliminary plans and streetscape concepts are attached. The West Park, the Nieman Gateway signs, and the Scout Trail Park  will be included as bid alternates and only installed if funds are available after bidding the project. .

There was a public meeting on Feburary 7th, 2018, to present the final plans and streetscape items along Nieman Road.  The final plans were approved at the March 19, 2018 Special City Council meeting. City staff has sent out easement documents to property owners.  The agreement with KCPL to provide relocated underground power throughout the corridor was approved at the May 24, 2018 City Council meeting.
The construction phase bid on August 15, 2018 and the low bid of Amino Brothers, Kansas City, KS was approved at the September 10, 2018 City Council meeting.  The utilities, including KCPL's sub-contractor Black and McDonald, continue relocating facilities underground and all utility work is scheduled to be complete on Nieman Road by the end of January 2019.

 Amino Brothers has begin construction of the Trail Scout Park and has begin on the storm sewer installation along Nieman Road.  The contractor for relocating the waterline for WaterOne will be complete with their work in a few weeks. In addition, the underground electrical relocation work is in the final stages.  Power poles are expected to be removed within the new few weeks also.

All improvements are anticipated to be completed by December 2019, weather dependent.  The project was initially scheduled to be done by the end of the year but the utility relocations are taking longer than anticipated, which has delayed the completion date.  A basic schedule is attached and will be updated at the project progresses
