Current Projects - Winter 2022
UPDATE: January 30, 2023
Due to weather delays from the recent snow and cold temperatures, the 8th and Braun intersection is scheduled to reopen early next week. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve this intersection.
UPDATE: January 3, 2023
Beginning, Monday, January 9, the full intersection will be closed to traffic. The closure is expected to last about three weeks weather-dependent. Residents who live on the west side of the intersection should use County Line Road to 207th Street to access their homes. Those who live on the south side should use 215th Street to Edgerton Road.
ORIGINAL POST: The 8th and Braun intersection will be widened as part of the 207th Street Grade Separation Project.
The City has contracted with Pyramid Contractors to add pavement in all directions and a new turn lane to southbound 8th Street. Work is expected to start in the coming months.
While the project area is small, the impact to through traffic will be substantial. During construction, alternate routes will need to be used.
UPDATE: August 2022 - Due to inflation, the building scope has been revised. Staff is working with the design team to look at options that would keep costs under control and still include the most important elements identified by the community.
UPDATE: April 2022 - Design of the indoor elements of the The Greenspace continues. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the project could be let for bid later this year.
UPDATE: December 9, 2021 - Design of the downtown Greenspace is currently underway. City Council members reviewed initial plans for the new building, which will include a temporary emergency shelter, gymnasium, indoor walking path and fitness room.
ORIGINAL POST: A new community building will be coming to downtown Edgerton. The Greenspace facility project calls for a building approximately 20,000-30,000 sq. feet to include multi-use sports courts, meeting spaces and event rooms, storm shelter, fitness center, walking track and outdoor splash pad.
Due to uncertainties from the pandemic, in 2020 the Edgerton City Council revised the schedule for the project with design to start in 2021. The City has contracted with Incite Design Studio to design the facility and hired Henderson Building Solutions as the City's Owner's Representative to manage the project.
The completion timeline is greatly dependent on final design and the ability to source the necessary construction materials with the on-going supply chain issues.
UPDATE: September 2022 - Design revisions are being finalized. Project expected to go out for bid in Q1 of 2023.
UPDATE: July 2022 - An agreement has been reached with KPC. The City Council approved an encroachment agreement for the sidewalk during the July 27 meeting, pending final revisions.
UPDATE: April 2022 - Staff continues discussions with the gas company for easement acquisition involving the high pressure natural gas line that runs through the park.
UPDATE: November 2021 - City staff is working on utility coordination and easement acquisition before the project is let out for bid.
UPDATE: September 27,2021 - The City Council selected the design in the image to the right, which includes a new walking trail, playground equipment, upgraded skate park and more.
ORIGINAL POST: The Edgerton City Council has approved a contract with SWT Design to redesign Glendell Acres Park on Edgewood Street. The City and SWT Design conducted a survey throughout the month of July to collect public opinions on the options for the renovations.
This project includes the design and renovation of the park with new equipment, a finished sidewalk system, re-purposed greenspaces and landscaping. The approved Parks Master Plan will govern the general design theme of the project.
This project is paid for though Park Impact Fees, the majority of which comes from development at LPKC.
Construction is expected to start in 2022.
The 207th Street Grade Separation is open to drivers. A ribbon cutting was held in late December 2021 for the off-grade crossing over the railroad tracks at 207th Street and Co-Op Road. The project is paid for entirely by revenue generated by LPKC and a CARS grant from Johnson County.
Final acceptance of this project is expected after the intersection improvements are completed at 8th and Braun streets.
