Pavement Management Program Rolls Ahead

Pavement Management Program Rolls Ahead
Posted on 03/19/2019
Pavement management

As the tulips and fresh grass sprout up around Lenexa, so will the
orange cones. More than 40 lane miles of Lenexa streets are scheduled to receive surface treatments starting in early spring to help maintain a quality street network.

We take a proactive approach to road maintenance through its Pavement Management Program. Strategically applying new surface treatments improves the look and rideability of our roads and prevents costly, disruptive future repairs.We have treated more than 77 percent of residential streets since 2014, prolonging their lifespan.

We budgeted $6.8 million for preventative maintenance in 2019. Work will occur across the city.

Planned projects

One of Lenexa's most well-known stretches of roadway is scheduled for mill and overlay work this year: 87th Street Parkway from Pflumm Road to Quivira Road. Half of this project will be funded by Johnson County's County Assistance Road System program.

About 11.5 lane miles of streets in business parks near I-435, plus a section of Clare Road between Prairie Star Parkway and 83rd Street, will also receive a new surface treatment.

About 12 lane miles of residential streets in neighborhoods scattered throughout Lenexa will receive a coat of ultra-thin bonded asphalt surface (UBAS). Application of UBAS moves quickly, and you can drive on the new surface soon after it is applied.

In addition to applying new surface treatments, crews will also repair deteriorated curb and sidewalks in the residential areas and upgrade curb ramps.

Keep up to date with planned closures and delays on main routes by signing up for our Road Construction Alerts.
