Project Status Construction
Description Reconstruction and widening of Monticello Road, from 71st Terrace to Shawnee Mission Parkway.  This will include new pavement, curb, sidewalk on one side, recreational trail on the other, street lights, on-street bicycle lanes, pavement markings, storm sewer facilities, signing and other miscellaneous items of work.

This is a project that was put on hold in 2009 because of the economic downturn.  City staff has negotiated a contract with the engineering consultant (HNTB) to provide updates to the plans and specifications.  The engineering contract was approved at the October 28, 2019 City Council meeting.  City staff is also working with utility companies to relocate their facilities.  The agreement with Southern Star was approved at the  November 12, 2019 City Council meeting.

The final plans were approved at the June 22, 2020 City Council meeting.   A bid letting was held on January 27, 2021.  Miles Excavating was low bidder. Construction began on March 1, 2021 and be completed by December 2021.  
Status Details This week (June 21st) the pipe crew is focusing on connecting services along the watermain placed along Monticello Road.  Watermain and storm sewer work will continue at the Monticello Road and Midland Drive Intersection.  Milling of Midland Drive and 71st Terrace is scheduled for late this week or early next week.

Evergy has completed the lowering of their seven power poles along Monticello Road.
