Nieman Corridor North Storm Drainage Improvements

Project Description:

This drainage sub-watershed is located along the Turkey Creek Tributary "F" immediately west of Nieman Rd to West of Flint St and has a long history of flooding adjacent homes, apartments and streets in large storm events. The Northeast Johnson County Watershed Study completed by Johnson County in 2006 identified numerous homes and streets flooding in this area.  The existing system is undersized and inadequate and is contributing to the flooding of ten (10) homes and apartment buildings and one street.  The proposed project will include removal of two (2) homes, installation of approximately 1,100 LF of concrete lined channel, 4 reinforced concrete boxes under Flint Street and channel transition  improvements at channel tie-in points near both Flint Street and Nieman Road.

Status Details:

The design contract for this project was awarded to Olsson Associates at the November 28, 2016 City Council Meeting. A recreational trail was added to the project along the south side of the channel at the February 7th Council Committee Meeting.

Construction bids were received on November 17, 2017 and the contract is scheduled to be awarded on November 27, 2017. All but a few easements have been obtained. Three houses are scheduled to be removed with this project. Flint Street between 60th Street and 60th Terrace is expected to closed for several months in early 2018. Once the construction contract is awarded, adjacent property owners will be updated with contact information for the contractor and inspector.

Construction of this project will follow the Nieman Corridor Middle Project which is underway near the intersection of Nieman Road and Roger Road. Construction on the Nieman North project is currently expected to start in January 2018 with most work completed by August 1st and sod installed in late September.
