The renovation project is nearing completion with the removal of one of the temporary office trailers. The second office trailer and the storage containers will be removed from the site next week and staff continues to organize the public works site to identify proper location for equipment and supplies.

The pavement marking contractor has completed paint restriping work within the city.

All concrete curb work is complete and all but one section of concrete sidewalk is complete. The contractors will now focus on yard restoration work around the newly installed curb and sidewalk.

The asphalt overlay process has started this week with milling along Hardy and Woodson. The milling operations will continue next week and the installation of asphalt will begin next week as well.

Crews continue large asphalt patching operations in advance of the asphalt overlay and LWA seal program and have placed 9 tons of asphalt this week.

Staff attended a green fleet exposition at the Overland Park Convention Center and was able to gather information on available alternative fuels for vehicles and was able to test drive several vehicles that were available. Staff was impressed with the performance, potential cost savings, and reduction in vehicle emissions by utilizing propane as a motor vehicle fuel. Public Works will continue to research the use of propane as a motor vehicle fuel with input from the police department and vendors. The focus of the initial research will be conversion cost and possible grant availability.
