Summary:

Project No. 3-C-084-17 was created by Resolution No. 18-1083 on September 18, 2018. 

This project will improve Lone Elm Road to a four-lane arterial section between Old 56 Highway and 151st Street along with geometric improvements at the intersection of Lone Elm Road and Old 56 Highway.  Improvements include storm sewer, streetlights, on-street bike lanes, landscaping, and sidewalks.  The existing bridge over the railroad will be modified to provide pedestrian access.  Attachment A is map of the project area.

 

Right-of-way and/or easements need to be acquired on 20 tracts of land for the project.

 

This resolution is the first step in the eminent domain process (Attachment B).

 

To keep the project on schedule, land acquisition needs to be completed by July 1, 2019.  Staff will continue to negotiate with the property owners to try to reach agreements to acquire the property before using the eminent domain process.
