[ARCHIVED] Striding toward street and sidewalk improvements

sidewalk newsflash.jpg

A series of City projects is under way, bringing long-anticipated infrastructure improvements and additions to sidewalks and streets across Spring Hill. Extensive improvements to a well-traveled road, a new park street, an acceleration lane, and a sidewalk extension will be completed over the next two months by Kansas Heavy Construction, whose bids came in well under the city's original project estimates.

These projects may cause some short-term traffic disruptions and inconveniences, but once completed, they'll be valuable upgrades that residents can enjoy for many years to come! While we've listed tentative schedule dates with each project description, please keep in mind that factors like weather and availability of supplies could affect these plans.

High school sidewalk
Tentative schedule: July 24 - Aug. 5
This stretch of sidewalk connecting Estates of Wolf Creek subdivision to the sidewalk that leads to the high school will be completed well ahead of the start of the school year. During a portion of the project, Ridgeview Road will be reduced to one lane with flagmen directing traffic.

Victory Road from Webster Street to the south limits
Tentative schedule: Aug. 8 - late September
Victory Road improvements weren't originally in this package of projects. When bids to stabilize the subgrade and double chip and seal the road were opened in April, they were far over budget, and the project was pushed back to 2017. However, after working with the contractor hired to do the sidewalk, acceleration lane, and access road, a change order was presented to the City Council at its July 28 meeting to add Victory Road to the same project package at a significant cost savings. Miami County offered to do the double chip seal work at-cost, and this once delayed and over-budget project will be completed this year at more than $11,000 under budget!
During this project, parts of Victory Road will be closed to traffic. Residents will still have access to and from their homes. Kansas Heavy Construction plans to make subgrade repairs from August 8-19. Miami County plans to do a double chip and seal - one in mid-September, one later in the month. This schedule will become more certain once a contract is approved with Miami County and the project date nears.

Webster Street acceleration lane
Tentative schedule: Aug. 21 - Sept. 2
The Webster Street acceleration lane will help traffic coming from the city's industrial park better merge when turning north onto Webster from 207th Street. During construction, Webster Street will be reduced to two lanes with no left turn lane.

Veterans Park access road
Tentative schedule: Sept. 6-30
Constructing the road to the future Veterans Park on the west side of City Lake will break ground on the site for the first time in this project. During part of the construction, 199th Street will be reduced to one lane with flagmen directing traffic.
