Lamar Curb Pour May 2020Lamar Avenue Street Rehabilitation and Resurfacing Project

Project Scope: The project will occur on Lamar Avenue beginning at Shawnee Mission Parkway, working north to Foxridge Drive. The project will include: 

  • Spot curb and gutter, sidewalk and other concrete repairs.
  • Joint and asphalt patching.
  • Ultra-Thin Bonded Asphalt Surface (UBAS) pavement treatment which will include a milling of the entire street and a resurfacing.

Construction period begins: May 6, 2020
Construction period length: 90 working days

Flaggers will direct traffic around construction areas. Please avoid distracted driving and use caution while in the project area.

Questions: Contact Tim Mulvaney, Superior Bowen, at 816-918-0196 or Brent Morton, City of Mission Public Works Superintendent at or 913-676-8380.

Following the completion of the street rehabilitation, new bike lanes and pavement markings will be installed. This is a separate process, using federal Safe Routes to School grant dollars. The specific timeline of this portion of the project is not yet known, but will be scheduled as close to the end of the rehabilitation and resurfacing work as possible.

Funding and Project Priority
The City is stretching tax payer dollars by using CARS funding (County Assistance Road System) dollars for more than 40% of the project expenses. CARS funding is only available for arterial streets that serve large numbers of trips each day within the county. These roads must be maintained and cared for regularly in order to support the traffic flowing in and around our City.
The City also secured $68,000 in federal funds for the bike lane markings through the Safe Routes to Schools program. These federal grant funds had to be expended in 2020.

A comprehensive street program is currently being developed which will guide future maintenance projects for residential streets throughout the City. That program will work to maximize resources to improve and maintain the useful life of Mission's neighborhood streets. The program is expected to introduce projects beginning in 2021.
