♦  The Main Street Expansion Project
The Main Street construction project officially began on Monday, July 10th. The 10 month project will be adding additional lanes on Main St. from Elm St. to US 75, left turn lanes and modernizing the traffic signals at the intersection of Main and Elwood. There will be some detours throughout the project at various times but we do anticipate keeping all lanes open on Main St. in both directions. We do appreciate your patience.

♦  Main Street - Elm Street to U.S. 75
This project has been designed and is currently in the utility relocation phase.  This project should be awarded to contractor by early 2017.

♦  111th – Elwood to U.S. 75
This project is in the design phase.  The concept is to construct a 5-lane intersection with left turn lanes and full signalization and to make 111th Street 3 lanes. Acquisition of right of way should be complete by Fall 2016 and construction start by Summer 2017.

♦  Elwood (Main to 111th)
This project is being designed.  The concept is to construct an improved 2-lane street between Main Street and 111th Street.

♦  Main Street (Date Street east to TSU Railroad)
The concept of this project is to improve the existing 3 lane configuration of Main Street and add curbing, drainage and landscaping to this portion of downtown.  Final design is expected to be completed by Summer 2017 and under construction in 2019.

♦  Elm Street (111th Street to 131st Street)
Engineering design was recently initiated to expand Elm Street to 5 lanes from 111th Street to approximately 125th Street South and transition to 3 lanes to 131st Street.  A pedestrian trail will be included along the 5-lane segment.  Design is expected to be completed in late 2017.

♦  Sanitary Sewer Infrastructure Master Plan
This project collected data and usage of the City of Jenks sanitary sewer system which was then used to analyze the capacity and efficiency of the system.  That analysis is now being used to prioritize the City’s needs for future capital spending to expand and/or upgrade the sewer system.

♦  Wastewater Treatment Plant Facilities Master Plan
This project will evaluate the use and operation of the wastewater treatment plant.  Information and engineering data will be used to prioritize needs for future capital projects to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant.
