First design-build project breaks ground today
KDOT will host a groundbreaking event for Kansas' first design-build project, the Johnson County Gateway Phase 2 Project at 2 p.m. today in Lenexa.
The $288 million project will improve the interchange at I-435/I-35/K-10. More than 230,000 vehicles travel through this interchange daily making it one of the most congested areas in the state.
Traditionally separate contracts are issued for the design and for the construction of a project. With a design-build project, a single contract is issued for both design and construction of the project. The Kansas Legislature authorized KDOT to do one design-build project as part of the transportation program, T-WORKS, and the Gateway Project was selected for this delivery method.
Governor Sam Brownback and KDOT Secretary Mike King will be speaking at today's event. Please join us for the event if you can.
Date: Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Quest Diagnostics, 10101 Renner Boulevard, Lenexa, KS - South Parking Lot Facing K-10. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held onsite inside the Quest Diagnostics Building.
