Streetscape work on $37 million Nieman Road project to begin soon

Shawnee’s massive Nieman Now project will soon enter the streetscaping phase.

The centerpiece of Shawnee’s major work on Nieman Road will soon go out for bid.

The streetscape phase to Nieman Now, the city’s biggest capital improvement project, will reduce Nieman Road to three lanes and add a bike and pedestrian path on one side as well as a sidewalk on the other.
