City of Shawnee celebrates Clear Creek improvements with ribbon-cutting
Completion of the Clear Creek Parkway road project was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting on Nov. 14.
The Clear Creek project included the completion of a one-mile three-lane street, with a 10-foot concrete trail and 5-foot sidewalk. It also features LED streetlights, a roundabout to connect to a future street and connection to the trail system underneath K-7 Highway.
The street is now open to all traffic.
Funding for the project was provided through city funds and an improvement district with Prieb Development.
At the ribbon-cutting, Greg Prieb, president of Prieb Homes, Inc., announced the construction of homes, ranging from $400,000 to $800,000, many with golf course views will begin near the parkway soon.
Key members of the Clear Creek Parkway construction team were R.L. Duncan, the prime contractor; Realm Construction, concrete paving; Freeman Concrete, flatwork concrete; Sosaya and Sons, street lighting; Feld, seeding and sodding.
