Construction Projects

Current Projects - Spring 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.

A new Logistics Park Kansas City project located at 213th Street and Kill Creek Road is planned. The contractor will temporarily access the project site utilizing Waverly Road and 213th Street. 

A permanent access road will be built off 207th Street.  The City of Edgerton expects the new access road to be complete in July. Once the new access road is complete ALL construction traffic will be removed from Waverly Road and 213th Street.

The contractor will use the temporary route during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday.  During this time, neighbors may notice large construction vehicles and equipment on the route and/or experience short intermittent periods of time where the road is closed by flaggers to allow for the travel of large vehicles/equipment or during times of increased traffic. In preparation for the project, Johnson County will prepare the temporary route with additional rock, grading, and an application of magnesium chloride to help abate dust.

Both Johnson County and the City of Edgerton will monitor the contractor’s operations and the condition of the temporary route.  Information regarding changes to the temporary route will be communicated through NotifyJoCo and this page.  We would encourage anyone interested to sign up for alerts through NotifyJoCo  and watch for updates here.  Message boards may be used as well.
