The AMS West Sidewalks Project, constructed by Bottorff Construction, has reached substantial completion. While final site restoration may extend until warmer temperatures allow for proper reseeding efforts, all concrete work associated with the project has now been completed. The project’s scope of work included sidewalk replacements and wheelchair ramp installations in the east/west pedestrian corridors for the neighborhood immediately west of Atchison Middle School.

The project was primarily funded by a $250,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) that was awarded to the City of Atchison in 2017, with the City picking up the rest of the tab on the $450,000 project.
