Project Description:

NW 72nd Street is located in Platte Woods, south of Lake Waukomis. NW 72nd Street is being replaced from the east side of the I-29 northbound off-ramp to the intersection of N Overland Drive.  The existing roadway east of N Overland Drive to N Polk will remain but a concrete curb will be added to the north side (westbound lane) of NW 72nd Street. 

Roadway improvements include:

  • One lane each direction with a continuous center left turn lane
  • New sidewalks
  • New street lighting and traffic signage
  • Public water main replacement
  • New underground storm sewer
  • New concrete drive approaches at all residential and commercial driveways
  • A roundabout at the intersection of N Overland Drive
  • Slope improvements to improve motorist visibility

Traffic Impact*:

 NW 72nd Street is currently closed to through traffic. Follow marked detour. 

*Businesses are open during construction.
