County will have meeting for participatory road program

November 16, 2012

Leavenworth County Public Works is offering to upgrade specific segments of gravel road to a chip-seal surface through the Leavenworth County Participatory Road Program, which includes roads in Basehor.

The county identified certain sections to which it wants to construct surface, drainage and geometric improvements, for which it would provide the surveying, engineering, materials, equipment and labor.

In return, affected landowners are asked to voluntarily grant temporary and permanent easements to the county. The donation of easements prevents construction delays and lowers costs.

Because it is a participatory program, either all landowners affected must grant easements or the county will move on to another prospective area.

The first of the eleven designated sections in which all corresponding landowners donate all necessary easements will be given top priority.

The two sections that could affect Basehor are 147th Street from Hollingsworth Road to Parallel Road and Hollingsworth Road from 147th Street to 155th Street.

County officials will hold a public meeting for the program 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Basehor-Linwood High School auditorium, 2108 N. 155th St.

This is great news if it comes to be. 147th st. is long overdue for improvement.
