Project Status Construction
Description This drainage sub-watershed is along the Turkey Creek Tributary 'F' immediately East of Nieman Rd to East of Barton St and has a long history of flooding adjacent homes, apartments and streets in large storm events. The Northeast Johnson County Watershed Study completed by Johnson County in 2006 identified numerous homes and streets flooding in this area.  The existing system is undersized and inadequate and is contributing to the flooding of four (4) homes, two (2) commercial buildings and Nieman Road.  The proposed project will include removal of two (2) homes, two (2) commercial buildings, installation of approximately 190 LF of concrete lined channel, 5 reinforced concrete boxes (2750 LF) under Nieman Rd and channel  improvements transitions.
Status Details The design contract for this project was awarded to Olsson Associates on October 24, 2016.  The construction of the project was awarded to VF Anderson on June 6, 2017.  Construction is about 95% complete with all culverts installed, cast-in-place connections to the channel constructed, and nearly all work completed on the east side of Nieman. Final asphalt has been placed on 61st Street, new Roger Road and in all private parking lots except Sushi Mido.  

VF Anderson has completed the connection between the Nieman South portion of the project completed in June 2017 to the middle section that crosses under Nieman Road. Since VF Anderson was awarded both the Nieman Middle and Nieman North drainage projects, temporary transition sections of the project were able to be deleted and to save the City on construction costs.  The final portions of Nieman Middle will be delayed and completed in conjunction with the Nieman North Drainage project as the west side of the project is over a common piece of property.

VFA is in the process of wrapping up work on the east side of Nieman including seeding and sod. Sidewalks in the area will remain closed until the Nieman Road project starts up as they are being replaced with the street project.  

This project will require multiple traffic pattern changes on Nieman Road  throughout the project. Old Shawnee Pizza, State Farm, Sushi Mido and Precision Tune will stay open during construction but watch signage for access to their driveways and parking lots. The majority of construction is currently scheduled to last until mid-March weather dependent with areas that are affected by Nieman North drainage project and the upcoming Nieman Road street project being completed as coordination allows.

Utility relocations will also continue as they are able to access their work zones.
