Title

Agreement between Sedgwick County, Kansas and the Kansas & Oklahoma Railroad, L.L.C. for the removal of the existing railroad crossings at Main Street and 295th Street West in Garden Plain, Kansas.  District 3.

 

Body

Recommended Action: Approve and authorize the Chairman to sign.

 

When a preventative maintenance project on a County road intersects with a railroad crossing, Public Works must coordinate the work with the Railroad.  During the coordination process for work in Garden Plain, it was determined that two crossings can be removed and replaced with new pavement.  This will result in a better ride and reduced maintenance costs for both the County and the Railroad.  This agreement is required to formalize responsibilities for construction and maintenance.
