Project Status Construction
Description This section of Pflumm Road is 1.35 miles in length and designated as an arterial road.  The existing road is curbed and has sidewalk on both sides.  This project will include mill and overlay, replacement of deteriorated curb and sidewalk, improvements to the 71st Street intersection, pavement markings, updated streetlights to LEDs, storm drainage facilities, and other appurtenant works.  This street is a CARS eligible street. 
Status Details Consultant has completed a traffic study at 71st and Pflumm and the necessary surveying to complete plans and specifications.    A virtual public meeting on July 1, 2020, at 7:00 to 8:00 pm.  This project is scheduled to begin construction summer of 2020.  The preliminary concept-plans and traffic study at 71st and Pflumm are attached. The traffic study indicates that no traffic signal is warranted at this time but recommends that the four-way stop be revised to a two-way stop, whereas Pflumm does not have to stop.

After further discussion with the Traffic Engineer and comments from the Public, the City has decided to not revise the 4-way stop to a 2-way stop at this time.  The City will include larger stop signs in the improvements to Pflumm to better visualize the existing stop condition.  Final plans are included in the July 13, 2020 City Council agenda for approval.

The project has bid and the City Council approved the low bid of Linaweaver Construction Company on August 10, 2020.  The work began on August 31, 2020 and will be completed in phases.  The traffic control will be setup as one-way for the majority of the project.  All work is to be completed by the 1st week of December.

Work is complete between Shawnee Mission Parkway and 71st Street except for traffic signal improvements at 67th Street.  Work is proceeding with installation of stamped concrete crosswalks at 71st Street and replacement and removal of curb and gutter between 71st Street and Blackfish Parkway.  Paving and pavement markings will be done this year if the weather remains warm enough.

UPDATE 3/2/21:  Pipe lining is complete and restoration is finishing up.  Paving from 70th Place to south City limits (~south of 75th Court) will be completed in March.
