The Center Street and Main Street Intersection project will provide additional turn lanes and signal modifications at this intersection in the heart of Gardner. The project’s primary purpose is to improve safety and relieve congestion. Dedicated left-turn lanes will be added on both approaches to the intersection on Main Street. Traffic will be maintained throughout construction as well as access to all adjacent properties.
Construction of this project is funded by the Kansas Department of Transportation. The City of Gardner is responsible for funding the engineering design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, and construction observation.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2013 and should be completed by the fall of 2013.
City staff will prepare construction plans to remove the curves and straighten W. 167th Street, just west of Waverly Road. This work should begin in 2013.

The project will include pedestrian and bicycle facilities and geometric improvements at the existing intersections of Grand Street with both Center Street and Moonlight Road. The work will also include a traffic signal at the intersection with Moonlight Road. It is anticipated that work will commence in mid-December and be substantially complete by June 1, 2013. All work on this roadway will be completed and the road will be open to the public by the beginning of July, 2013.
