City Begins 2018 Street Projects

Road Work

The City of Bonner Springs has begun its annual street rehabilitation projects to address the most necessary infrastructure needs within the city. The city has approved projects totaling $835,233.35 to address road repaving and repair work to streets, sidewalks and ramps.

This year’s rehabilitation projects include 13.5 miles of streets in Bonner Springs which equates to 20% of the 64 total lane miles within the City.

Last year, the City teamed up with Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) to conduct a state-of-the-art street pavement analysis in an effort to utilize data to increase accuracy and efficiency in completing the pavement condition survey. IMS documented pavement fatigue, rutting, cracking, potholes, roughness, joint spalling, and more, to analyze the condition of the surface of roads, identify maintenance and rehabilitation needs, and ensure that road maintenance budgets are spent efficiently and equitably. This technology allowed the City to utilize a more thorough, comprehensive, and proactive approach to review the entire road network called a Pavement Condition Index (PCI).

IMS completed the survey in August then created an inventory of city streets, which included the compiled data, and created some mapping and spreadsheets for city use. Repair and rehabilitation plans were developed based on the cost of deferring repairs.

A list of streets and curbs approved to be included in this year’s projects are listed below. An additional $185,873.40 worth of street and curb work is included for approval on the July 23, 2018, City Council Meeting agenda. That work includes chipseal on 138th Street from Metropolitan to Kansas; reclamite on Nettleton Avenue from K-7 to Oak Street; and resurfacing and concrete work on Pratt Avenue from Garfield to the west end, North Bluegrass from W. Morse to Insley, McDaniel from Insley to the south end, and Insley from Garfield to Bluegrass.
