Nieman Corridor North Storm Drainage Improvements

Project Description:

This drainage sub-watershed is located along the Turkey Creek Tributary "F" immediately west of Nieman Rd to West of Flint St and has a long history of flooding adjacent homes, apartments and streets in large storm events. The Northeast Johnson County Watershed Study completed by Johnson County in 2006 identified numerous homes and streets flooding in this area.  The existing system is undersized and inadequate and is contributing to the flooding of ten (10) homes and apartment buildings and one street.  The proposed project will include removal of two (2) homes, installation of approximately 1,100 LF of concrete lined channel, 4 reinforced concrete boxes under Flint Street and channel transition  improvements at channel tie-in points near both Flint Street and Nieman Road.

The design contract for this project was awarded to Olsson Associates at the November 28, 2016 City Council Meeting. Preliminary plans were presented at a July 20th neighborhood meeting. If you were unable to attend and want more information please call us. This project will require both temporary construction and permanent utility easements to construct. Easement adquisition offers and documents will be sent out in August to affected property owners.

Construction of this project will follow the Nieman Corridor Middle Project which is underway near the intersection of Nieman Road and Roger Road. Construction on the Nieman North project is currently expected to start in February 2018.

Initial concept plans were presented at the January 30th, 2017 meeting. A recreational trail was added to the project along the south side of the channel at the February 7th Council Committee Meeting.
