School Board Hears Update On Burritt Street Construction

Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees were given an updated time line on the Burritt Street Construction which will affect the end of this school year, but should be substantially complete before the start of the 2014-15 school year.

District Business Manager Matt Ramey said the city they gave him their plan for detours to the schools on South Burritt Street through the end of the school year.

Ramey then explained the city will be re-constructing all of Burritt Street from Fort Street to Cemetery Road and needs to begin work before the end of the school year to get the entire project completed by the end of summer.

One interesting aspect of the construction Ramey was not aware of was the city's plan to completely re-align the intersection of Burritt and Angus near the pool to give that intersection as much of a 90-degree access to Burritt from Angus as possible with a stop sign installed there to alleviate speeding around that corner.

In other happenings, Ramey explained the district is expected to receive all of its allotted Major Maintenance Payment this year, which is just over $998,000.

And finally he said he will be bringing a lease agreement for a new school bus in the next few meetings for the board's approval.
The district was approved by the state to replace one of their aging fleet this year.
