A KDOT funded project along Main Street (10th to 12th) has just reached substantial completion.
The Main Street (10th to 12th) Project included construction and/or reconstruction of the curb/gutter, driveway entrances, and sidewalks on Main Street (K7) from 10th Street to 12th Street. Additionally, a new traffic signal was installed at the intersection of 10th and Main that includes a protected left turn for northbound traffic on 10th Street during the railroad crossing preemption cycle and eliminates the existing cross-beam style signal pole.
“This project is going to sync up really well with other grant funded projects coming soon in downtown Atchison,” said Assistant City Manager, Justin Pregont. “The City has recently secured over $1,000,000 in grant funds to help improve the Main Street Corridor and you’ll start seeing other projects come to life over the next couple years.”
The $490,000 Main Street (10th to 12th) Project is 100% funded by KDOT grant funds, though the City did contribute in-kind engineering design and administration services to help complete the project.
Kansas Heavy Construction out of Tonganoxie bested two other bidders to win the construction contract, which was approved by the City Commission last year.
