Celebrate improved walkability in Mission! The Johnson Drive rehabilitation project is wrapping up, and we invite you to join us for a ribbon cutting and downtown stroll to mark the improvements. The project was partially funded by Johnson County CARS dollars and in partnership with the City of Roeland Park. The project included:
• UBAS resurfacing to extend the lifecycle of the street;
• Restriping to a three lane section from Lamar Avenue to Nall Avenue;
• Pavement and median repairs, spot replacement of curb and gutter, driveway approaches, sidewalks, parking stalls and ADA ramps;
• Removal and replacement of the decorative asphalt pavers from Nall Avenue to Roeland Drive to improve ADA compliance;
• The installation of a new five-foot wide sidewalk on the north side of Johnson Drive within Roeland Parks city limits.
