Why Are the Curbs Being Replaced?


Arterial Street Improvements - 2017

Roe Avenue Improvements, from College Boulevard (111th Street) to 119th Street

The City approved a construction contract with Miles Excavating, Inc., on February 20, 2017, for improvements to Roe Avenue. Improvements include overlaying the street, replacement of corrugated metal stormsewer pipe, replacement of the curb, installation of LED streetlights, modifications to center turn lanes and minor modifications to traffic signals.

The cost for the project is $2,441,908.76 with Johnson County CARS funding 50% of the costs. The City's share of the cost will use funds from the Curb Program and from the 1/8 cent sales tax funds. Construction will begin March 1, 2017, and continue through June 1, 2017.

Signs are currently posted and traffic will be reduced to one (1) lane during construction. EXPECT DELAYS.


Residential Construction Projects - 2017


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:

Reserve at Ironhorse
Longwood Forest
Normandy Place
Hills of Ironhorse
Cherry Creek
Oxford Hills
Wilshire Place
Old Leawood (High Drive/Sagamore)
Leawood Estates (97th to 103rd/Lee to Stateline)
The Woods at Ironhorse/Stone Ledge
