Street Preservation Projects – 2021
Construction on Mission’s 2021 street preservation projects is scheduled to begin late July, depending on delivery of the stormwater inlet boxes and weather. Streets to be rehabilitated include:
- Dearborn Drive: W. 63rd Terrace to Lamar Avenue
- W. 63rd Terrace: Beverly Drive to Woodson Drive
- 53rd Place: Horton Street to Dearborn Street
- 60th Street: Shawnee Mission Parkway to Roe Avenue
The projects on each of the streets listed above will include spot curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs, asphalt patching, and an Ultra-Thin Bonded Asphalt Surface (UBAS) pavement treatment (Dearborn Dr. and W. 63rd Terr.) or a mill and 2-inch asphalt surface overlay (53rd Place and 60th Street).
Superior Bowen has been selected as the contractor for this project and construction is estimated to begin during the week of July 19, weather permitting. Superior Bowen will complete each phase of work on all four streets prior to moving to the next phase. The phases are:
- Stormwater work beginning on 60th Street
- Spot curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs
- Asphalt patching
- Pavement removal and replacement
For residents in the project areas, there will be times during construction when parking will not be allowed on one or both sides of your street so that the contractor can remove and replace curb and gutter, patch asphalt or lay asphalt. Prior to this work, Superior Bowen will provide you with 48 hours notice using door hangers and the City will place tempora1y “no parking” signs on the side of the street where work will be completed. Additionally, you will be notified by door hangers when curb removal and replacement is to be performed in front of your driveway and you will be required to park on the street for approximately 4 days while this work is completed. During this time, if you require special accommodations for access to your driveway, please contact Scott Laforge, Lan-Tel, at 816.399.9739.
If you have any questions or concerns during construction, please feel free to contact John Belger, Superior Bowen’s Project Manager, 816.301.4834 or Mission’s Project Manager, Brent Morton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Celia Duran, Public Works Direction at email@example.com at 913.676.8375.
Each year, Mission’s Street Preservation Program improves the road infrastructure in the City. To learn more about the process, visit the Street Program page.
