Public Works is in the process of designing plans for Johnson Road between roughly Hallelujah Trail and Rhonda Road that would combine a handful of needed improvements into a single project. When completed, this project is planned to include road reconstruction, drainage upgrades, pedestrian amenities, a roundabout at the Johnson/Keller-Smithfield intersection and replaced water lines.

Current Status

Design plans have reached 60% completion. Copies of plan sheets relevant to individual properties were mailed to property owners so that they could review exactly what is proposed to be removed and/or constructed. Recipients have been asked to reach out to city staff with any questions or concerns so that comments can be shared with the design team in advance of proceeding to 90% completion. The city hopes to have all discussions with individual property owners in time to forward comments to the consultant team by July 10.


Next Steps

Once plans have advanced to 90%, city staff expects to host a final design-focused public meeting for the project’s adjacent property owners to ensure everyone is on the same page before we advance toward construction.
