2018 Construction Projects

  • Leawood North Bike Loop

    A project this year of the Sustainability Advisory Board/Sub-Committee Bicycle/Walk Leawood Committee was the creation of a 10 mile Bicycle Loop in north Leawood.

    The Public Works Department opened bids for construction in March of 2018, and Council awarded a construction contract in April to C-Hawkk Construction Inc. for $34,547.80. The final payment and contract completion is set for July 2018.

    The Project provides a signed bike route and is appropriate for all ages of bicycle enthusiasts; although young children should be accompanied by adults. An informational kiosk is situated at the starting point at City Park, 106 & Lee Boulevard. The bike loop is marked with City of Leawood North Loop signs to guide you on the path. So check it out, have fun and remember to always wear a helmet.

  • Mission Road - 85th Street to 95th Street

    A Mill & Overlay is scheduled for Mission Road, between 85th to 95th Street. Sidewalk will also be constructed on the Leawood side of Mission.

    Leawood and the City of Prairie Village, Kansas, have entered into an Interlocal Agreement with the Board of County Commissioners of Johnson County, Kansas for the improvements. The Project will be funded in part by the County Assistance Road System ("CARS") Program. The Project is being administered by the City of Prairie Village, KS. Construction is expected to begin in June of 2018.

    Johnson County Wastewater will be completing their work on their force mains from July to September on this stretch of road as well, we hope to have our new surface placed on Mission Road after their work is completed.

  • NEW TRAFFIC SIGNAL - Mission Road at Lee Boulevard

    The City of Leawood authorized the installation of Permanent Traffic Signals at Mission Road and Lee Boulevard. As part of the Johnson County Wastewater Treatment Plant reconstruction project, the area will soon be seeing more traffic as the treatment plant is expanded. Johnson County and Leawood will share in costs of the new signal.

    The County is on a tight schedule to complete their project. Signals take approximately six (6) months to design, bid and construct. It is believed the addition of signals will not only assist motorists with the added construction traffic, but help in providing a smoother traffic flow of the developing area and City Park events as well.
