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. The work on 72nd Street is scheduled to start around July 8th.

Project Status Update - 04/23/19

The contractor began work on Ridgemont Drive on Monday, April 22nd. The contractor will be installing storm sewer on the north side of Ridgemont Drive from 72nd Street to 74th Street starting at the intersection of 74th Street. In order to install the storm sewer, the sidewalk and driveways will need to be removed and replaced. The westbound lane will also be closed for this work. The intersection of 74th Street with Ridgemont Drive is closed at 74th Street. 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 aide in the process. Additional information is available in the helpful downloads below.
