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, therefore 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 - 06/11/19

The contractor has completed installing storm sewer on the north side of Ridgemont Drive from 72nd Street to 74th Street except for a short distance just west of 72nd Street. This work will be completed after July 8th.

The sidewalk, driveway, and street replacement is scheduled to start on Wednesday. The westbound lane will be closed for this work.

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.
