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.
