Beginning this spring, Olathe residents can expect more street maintenance work throughout the city. Street improvements will occur on approximately 90 lane miles of residential streets – that’s more than four times the number of local lane miles that received maintenance in 2013.

The work is funded, in part, by the 3/8th-cent Street Maintenance Sales Tax, approved by voters in November 2013. The City began collecting the sales tax on April 1, 2014.
