This is the second phase of 143rd Street Improvements. The section of Nall Avenue to Windsor (Phase 1) was completed in the fall of 2016.

Residential Construction Projects - 2017


Residential UBAS / Thin Asphalt Overlay Program

The City of Leawood has contracted with O'Donnell and Sons for the 2017 UBAS/Thin Overlay Program. Improvements are scheduled to begin on May 1, 2017. The entire project will take approximately 6 weeks. Rainy/inclement weather may delay the start of the program.

The program will mill the streets and apply a 1" asphalt overlay. By using the 1” overlay we are able to complete all the streets that were scheduled for the slurry seal and 2” overlay program. During the project, streets will be barricaded and closed off completely the day the surface is applied. Residents on the project will be notified prior to the road closing. Once the overlay has cooled, the barricades will be removed and the street returned to normal traffic (2 to 4 hours).

Please do not drive on the freshly laid material as long as barricades remain in place. As unexpected events can change plans, please call O'Donnell and Sons at (913)681-2155 with any questions or concerns.

The asphalt overlay improvements are planned for the subdivisions of:
