Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

Project No. 3-C-041-18 was created by Resolution No. 18-1023 on February 20, 2018.

 

This project will improve Woodland Road to a four-lane divided arterial roadway between K-10 Highway and College Boulevard.  Improvements include storm sewer, curb and gutter, medians, new streetlights, traffic signals, on-street bike lanes, landscaping and sidewalks. Attachment A is a map of the project area. 

 

Right-of-Way and/or easements need to be acquired on 32 tracts of land for the project.

 

On February 5, 2019, the City Council approved Resolution No. 19-1017 which authorized an engineering survey of land needed for the project.

 

This ordinance is the second step of the eminent domain process.  The ordinance approves the survey and authorizes the filing of a petition for eminent domain in the Johnson County, Kansas District Court (Attachment B - Ordinance).

 

To keep the project on schedule, land acquisition needs to be completed by June 1, 2019.  Staff is negotiating with the property owners to try to reach agreements to acquire the property needed before filing the eminent domain petition.
