The drainage sub-watershed along the Turkey Creek Tributary north of Shawnee Mission Parkway and beneath Nieman Road has a history of flooding businesses and threatening infrastructure including retaining walls and utilities. The Northeast Johnson County Watershed Study completed by Johnson County in 2006 identified two businesses and Nieman Road flooding on this tributary. The existing double box culvert is undersized and inadequate and is contributing to the flooding of two businesses and inundation of Nieman Road. The proposed project will include replacement of box culverts with a conspan, vertical walls east to Nieman South project (P.N. 3400), relocation of sanitary sewers and reconstruction of the undermined retaining wall adjacent to commercial enterprises.
