The City of Topeka is preparing to kick off the 2024 project season as part of the city’s continued efforts to improve our infrastructure.
Construction season typically starts in March or April, and runs through November, depending on weather. The city’s Public Works and Utilities departments work collaboratively on these projects, when applicable.
Many of the scheduled projects for 2024 are mill and overlay, with some full-depth patching as needed. Exceptions include SW Huntoon St. and those slated for Ultrathin Bonded Asphalt Surface (UBAS). UBAS is thicker and more robust than microsurfacing and is a better choice for arterial roads.
The following highlighted Public Works projects are slated for 2024:
- NE River Road – Mill and overlay with full-depth patching as needed
- SW Topeka Blvd. from SW 21st St. to SW 29th St. -– Mill and overlay with full-depth patching as needed
- Hi-Crest Neighborhood (Phase II) – Mill and overlay with full-depth patching as needed
- SW Roosevelt from SW 6th Ave. to SW 8th Ave. – Mill and overlay with full-depth patching as needed
- SW Huntoon St. from SW Gage Blvd. to SW Van Buren St. – Preliminary design concept only
- UBAS – SW 6th Ave. from SW MacVicar Ave. to SE Monroe St.
- SE Monroe St. from SE 6th Ave. to SE 10th Ave.
- SE Madison St. from SE 6th Ave. to SE 10th Ave.
Funding for the city’s Public Works projects are primarily supported through the citywide half-cent sales tax.
