A slew of new construction projects in Basehor may delay some residents in their daily commute as the city begins three new projects on Monday, Sept. 16.

As part of the Wolf Creek Parkway construction project, which has an estimated cost of $2.5 million, crews will begin construction on 155th Street and 158th Street as they extend Wolf Creek Parkway between the two roads.

City Council agreed in August to award a contract to Miles Excavating for the Wolf Creek Parkway extension project. Miles Excavating offered a bid of $1,922,433.17 and beat out five other candidates.

The Wolf Creek parkway extension is designed to provide a connection between 155th and 158th streets that would allow Basehor drivers to move between the two streets without using the highway and also provide access to properties north of the highway in that area.

Below are details provided by the city of Basehor regarding the construction projects.

158th Street: Between US-24/40 to South of Garden Parkway
