Santa Fe St. to reopen on Monday, April 8

Post Date:04/05/2019

Santa Fe St. between Chestnut St. and Kansas Ave. in downtown Olathe will reopen ahead of schedule on Monday, April 8, in time for morning rush hour. The street was closed on Monday, Feb. 11, while crews constructed a tunnel under Santa Fe St. running from the Sheriff’s Office Central Booking Facility to the new Johnson County Courthouse as part of the larger Johnson County Courthouse project. The tunnel is used to securely transport inmates.

Contractors worked through rain, ice, and snow to complete the project nearly two weeks ahead of schedule.
