Ridgeview Road Project Delayed

Originally slated to open late 2019, the road will now open in spring of 2020.

The project is nearly complete, but due to low temperatures, the final two inches of asphalt must be delayed until spring. Work will resume on laying the final asphalt and striping the road as soon as weather permits and asphalt plants reopen next spring.

Work that is not weather dependent, including sidewalks and lighting, will continue throughout the coming months.

Temporary access to the Little Mill Creek trailhead will be reestablished in the coming weeks as soon as Johnson County Wastewater finishes a main extension project.

The new section of road will provide a vital transportation connection and open up the surrounding area to new development opportunities.
