It's Road Work Season

It's Road Work Season
Posted on 03/04/2022

As temperatures grow warm enough to place asphalt, you can expect to see road construction projects heating up around Lenexa. Keep an eye out for major traffic delays associated with these City of Lenexa projects by following us on social media and signing up for Road Closure Alerts at

Improvement Projects

87th Street and I-435 interchange
Expect ramp closures and lane closures in the spring and summer as work continues on additional turn lanes and through lanes on 87th Street Parkway and to the I-435 ramps, plus other trail, traffic signal and storm sewer improvements.

Quivira Road from 75th Street to 87th Street Parkway
Lenexa is partnering with the City of Shawnee on improvements to the 75th Street and Quivira Road intersection, including new turn lanes. Additional improvements to turn lanes, storm sewer and traffic signals are planned between this intersection and 87th Street Parkway. 

Pavement Management Program

The City of Lenexa’s Pavement Management Program helps ensure our roads are safe and in good condition through annual proactive maintenance.

Several major thoroughfares are slated for mill and overlay. While through traffic can usually be maintained on these projects using lane closures and flaggers, full road closures with detours are sometimes necessary.

  • 83rd Street/87th Street Parkway from just east of Valley Road to Renner Boulevard
  • 79th Street from Gleason Road to Mize Road
  • Lone Elm Road from Kansas Highway 10 to Prairie Star Parkway
  • 83rd Street from Maurer Road to Pflumm Road
  • Little Mill Creek Park and Municipal Services parking lots

Streets in the Parkhurst and Falcon Ridge neighborhoods will be treated with an ultra-thin bonded asphalt surface (UBAS) to extend their useful life. This process moves quickly, and the surface can be driven on soon after it’s applied. Residents should receive door hangers before work starts in their area. 

103rd Street from Pflumm Road to Quivira Road will also be treated with UBAS in spring or summer.
