72nd Street Reconstruction Project

Project Description:

This project will involve the reconstruction of 72nd Street from Douglas Avenue to just north of Prairie Avenue. This reconstruction will provide for the replacement of a 25' wide street. The limits of this project will extend from the north side of Douglas Avenue, north along 72nd Street through the intersection with Prairie Avenue. This area does not have an adequate storm sewer system, so a new storm sewer will be added as part of the project. Storm Sewer improvements will also be added along the north side of Ridgemont Drive from 72nd Street to 74th Street.

Project Status Update - 11/27/19

Stage 1 - Ridgemont Drive is open to traffic. The contractor has a couple of small areas of sod left to complete.

Stage 2 - 72nd Street is open to traffic.

With the wet fall we have been experiencing, we will not be completing as much of the work as had been anticipated in 2019. Stages 1 and 2 are complete and open. Stage 3 is scheduled to start first thing in the spring. Depending on the weather next spring, we anticipate stages 3 and 4 being completed prior to July 1, 2020. Stage 5 may need to occur after the 4th of July.

As a part of the project, storm sewer services will be installed to the properties on each side of the street. Property owners are strongly encouraged to connect to the service. A grant program has been established to aid in the process. Additional information is available in the helpful downloads below.
