Current Projects - Summer 2021
The City of Edgerton has contracted with Pyramid Construction to build the 207th Street Grade Separation. The off-grade crossing over the railroad tracks at 207th Street and Co-Op Road will give first responders a clear route into town and improve commute times for the traveling public whenever a train is blocking the crossings into the residential community.
This $15 million bridge is paid for entirely by revenue generated by LPKC and a $1 million CARS grant from the County.
During construction, traffic will be able to drive 207th Street until the final connections need to be made. Various temporary road closures will happen throughout the construction schedule. Please watch the City's website and social media pages for up-to-date information. You can also sign up for NotifyJoCo for traffic alerts to be sent directly to you.
UPDATE July 28, 2021:
Crews are installing the cross road storm sewer system under Co-Op and 207th Street over the coming week.
207th Street will be closed between Sunflower Road and east of the railroad tracks on:
Thursday, 7/29, 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM
LONG TERM CLOSURE
Co-Op Road will be closing on Wednesday, August 4th at 7:00 a.m. until the final connections are made with 207th Street later this year. Co-Op will be shut down between Edgewood and 207th Street until further notice. The project is on track to be substantially complete before the end of the year.
As a reminder, this is an active construction zone. The trucks bringing in dirt or rock are required to be tarped and crews are taking measures, such as watering, to keep the dust down. The bump on 207th Street is part of the utility relocations and will be resolved as part of the project. Please exercise caution if you are driving along 207th or Co-Op Road and do not enter fields where the equipment is staged. We want everyone to remain safe.
