A tentative date of June 4, 2018 has been established to close Route 458 (N 1000 Road) from E 1800 Road to Route 1057 (E 1900 Road) for the start of a project to improve roadside safety.  Both E 1800 Road and Route 1057 will remain open for north-south traffic.  The full project is two miles long on Route 458 from E 1800 Road to E 2000 Road, but only the west mile of the project will be closed initially.  The east mile of the project will be closed later this summer.

 

The project involves replacing narrow culverts, flattening roadside slopes near those culverts, some tree removal from the right-of-way, and pavement rehabilitation.  Douglas County will receive High Risk Rural Road (HRRR) federal funding for the project through KDOT.  HRRR funding will cover 90% of the construction costs for the roadside safety improvements.  Douglas County is responsible for 100% of pavement rehabilitation costs.

 

KDOT opened bids for the project, and awarded a contract to Bettis Asphalt & Construction, Inc. in the low bid amount of $1,331,801.00.  Douglas County’s Capital Improvement Program is funding the necessary local matching costs and the full costs of pavement rehabilitation.
