Please note there is still NORTHBOUND ONLY traffic from 123rd Street to 127th Street.

The contractor expects to complete the storm sewer installation by December 15th. The remaining construction from 127th Street to 123rd Street (curbs, sidewalks, and new street lights) will be constructed in the spring of 2020, also at which time the entire roadway (119th Street to 127th Street) will be milled and overlayed.
The intersection of 123rd and Mission will remain a WB stop condition for 123rd and traffic on Mission will not stop.
Utility Companies continue to work on the undergrounding of their facilities between 119th Street and 123rd Street and should be complete by early December 2019.
Restoration of properties north of 123rd Street is complete on the west side. South of 123rd Street and on the east side from 119th Street to 123rd Street will have areas disturbed by the utility work (that are outside of our construction area) restored in the upcoming weeks, as well as the east side sidewalks repaired and open.
To all Leawood residents,
The frequent and sizable recent rain events are causing water related problems for some of our Johnson County Wastewater customers (JCW).
Thus – I wanted to briefly let you know about the Johnson County Waste System Back-up Prevention Program (BUPP) which has available funds. The program began in 1998 due to large rain events and the Commission has continued to fund the program.
Northeast Johnson County includes some of the oldest areas (greater than 50 years old) and is primarily made up of clay pipes. As these pipes age, cracks can develop allowing rain and groundwater to enter the pipes. Water in basements can be caused by many things other than sanitary sewers including rainwater coming in and around home foundations, blocked foundation drains, or improperly sloped ground around the house.
Johnson County Wastewater wants to help Johnson County residents better protect their homes during these rains. This program is voluntary and provides funding to eligible home owners, so they may install a backup prevention device or make plumbing modifications on their property.
JCW staff will investigate all calls to determine if the water in the basement was due to a sanitary sewer back up or water from some other source.
If you hear from constituents regarding sewer backup issues, please feel to direct them to JCW’s website https://jocogov.org/dept/wastewater/engineering/backup-prevention
Effective Friday July 26, 2019, the Leawood False Alarm Reduction Program will be managed by Cry Wolf Services. It is very important for all of our residents and businesses to understand that the level of Police services provided in response to an alarm will not be affected. All fees associated the False Alarm Reduction Program are controlled by the City. The Police Department continuously works to provide the best possible level of services to the community and we believe this transition is in line with that goal. We have a long standing working relationship with Cry Wolf Services and we are confident in their ability to manage this program with the same level of customer service as you have grown accustomed to.
