Merriam’s E. Frontage Road next to I-35 in line for $2 million worth of improvements in 2021

Merriam's E. Frontage Road, above running parallel to Interstate 35, will be undergoing nearly $2 million worth of improvements — $852,000 of which could be reimbursed by the County Assisted Road System program.

The Merriam City Council this week approved nearly $2 million worth of work along E. Frontage Road, running parallel to Interstate 35 between 67th and 75th St.

Almost half of the project’s cost will be reimbursed with funds from Johnson County’s County Assisted Road System, or CARS.
