Cedar Street Improvements


Walter P Moore designed approximately 4,500 LF of street reconstruction in Olathe’s Original Town area, just southeast of City Hall. As part of Olathe’s Street Reconstruction Program, this section of residential street was reconstructed to a minimum 28’ wide (typical) section with curb and gutter, post-top street lights, retaining walls, driveway approaches, enclosed storm sewer system, sidewalks and ADA compliant sidewalk ramps. A comprehensive public relations approach was implemented to keep residents and property owners informed throughout the project and gather their feedback.

City utility upgrades along with fiber-optic network buildout required a comprehensive approach to utility coordination during design. A state registered property adjacent to the improvements required coordination with the Kansas State Preservation Office. In addition, the proximity of a Superfund Site to the improvements required coordination with KDHE Bureau of Environmental Remediation. 

Cedar Street was Walter P Moore’s first roadway project with the City of Olathe.
