Safety Improvement Projects

Public Works’ long-range vision to improve traffic safety is to construct road safety improvements. These projects are generally modest safety enhancements consisting of shoulders, drainage improvements and clearing obstacles next to the road. The informational guide explains safety improvements in more detail.


Project Highlight: Mission Road

Mission Road, south of the Blue River, is an unengineered and unimproved road. Growth and traffic continue to increase in unincorporated Johnson County and in particular in the area of Mission Road. Safety improvements are needed starting at the Blue River bridge and continuing south to 199th Street. The Mission Road Improvements guide helps to explain the intention and timing of future improvements along the Mission Road corridor.
