It’s summertime, Johnson County, and (besides the heat) you know what that means: road construction.
There are several projects that cities or the state are working are working on across Johnson County, and we’ve put together a list of some of the largest one that are either already underway or about to start. This includes both lane closures or delays, as well as full road closures.
87th Street Parkway and Winchester Street: Two-week lane closures at this intersection beginning Tuesday, June 21, for concrete work, according to the city’s Facebook page. Westbound 87th will be reduced to two lanes between Winchester and Elmridge Streets and the northbound lane on Winchester will be closed.
- The detour for this closure will be eastbound 87th Street Parkway to northbound Elmridge Street to westbound 87th Street Parkway. More details can be found here.
83rd Street: Lane closures between Maurer and Quivira Roads will begin on June 22 and last for three weeks, weather permitting. Although improvements began on May 17 for this repavement project, weather delays pushed the four-week timeline back, according to a city alert.
