As warm weather approaches, the City of Lenexa is ready to begin a slate of new street improvement and maintenance projects. Here’s where you can expect to see road work underway this spring and summer.

Pavement Management Program

Lenexa keeps streets in good shape with proactive maintenance. The Pavement Management Program will resurface streets and repair damaged curb, gutter and sidewalk in several residential neighborhoods and major thoroughfares through 2024. See the map of planned work areas at Lenexa.com/PMP.

Street Reconstruction Program

Deer Run Street and roads in the Penny Green subdivision have deteriorated to the point where the roadway needs to be completely rebuilt. Work to reconstruct these streets and make other improvements will take place over several months. Impacted residents can learn more at open houses — watch for a mailer. We also post updates at Lenexa.com/StreetReconstruction

Loiret Boulevard and 95th Street 

Multiple improvements are coming to this busy intersection, including:

  • New traffic signal with pedestrian signals and ADA improvements
  • Westbound right turn lane on 95th Street 
  • Southbound right turn lane on Loiret Boulevard
  • Extension of the northbound right turn lane on Loiret
  • Trail into Electric Park

Lackman Road turn lane

Northbound Lackman Road backs up significantly at I-435 during peak hours. A right turn lane at the eastbound I-435 entrance ramp will add capacity and reduce delays at this intersection. 

Santa Fe Trail Drive

Santa Fe Trail Drive between 95th Street and Park Street will welcome new curbs and gutters, streetlights, storm sewers and a trail into Old Town. Upgrades will also be made to the traffic signal at Santa Fe Trail Drive and Pflumm Road.

83rd Street and Lackman Road traffic signal

A new traffic signal and pedestrian access improvements will enhance safety and convenience for everyone traveling this increasingly busy intersection.

What should I do if one of these projects will affect my neighborhood or commute?

  • Sign up for Road Closure Alerts at Lenexa.com/ENews. We’ll send out an alert when closures are planned that could significantly impact traffic.

  • Watch for a doorhanger. If you live in a neighborhood where road work is planned, we ask the contractor to leave doorhangers explaining the project schedule.

  • Keep an eye out for message boards. Roadside message boards typically display closure info a few days in advance.

  • Avoid distractions like your cell phone. Watch for workers, and follow the posted speed limit.
