CARS program contributes to road improvement projects

199th Street roundabout plans

The County Assistance Road System (CARS) program has contributed funds to several road improvements in Spring Hill.

The CARS program is funded through Johnson County’s share of the State of Kansas’ Special City County Highway Fund (commonly known as the “gas tax”) and the county’s general revenue. The program’s goal is to boost interconnectivity among cities in Johnson County, so mostly arterial streets are eligible for CARS funding.   Johnson County pays up to 50% of the project’s construction and inspection costs.  

Mayor of Spring Hill, Steve Ellis, recognizes the fiscal assistance from the county. "We are grateful to the Johnson County Commission for its continued support of the CARS program, as well as for the support we have received from the County for our CARS projects.” 

Some of the projects utilizing CARS funding are:

Location: North Webster Street: 207th Street to 1,350 Feet North 

Improvement: Construct 12 foot wide acceleration lane blending into existing deceleration lane 

CARS Funding: $155,000 

Spring Hill: $321,954 

Total: $476,954 

Location: Lone Elm Rd: 750 Feet North of 207th St 

Improvement: Repair existing reinforced concrete box culvert including replacing existing wingwalls and placing riprap for upstream and downstream erosion control. 

CARS Funding: $162,000 

Spring Hill: $222,000 

Total: $384,000 


Location: 199th and Ridgeview Rd Intersection  

Improvement: Replace four-way intersection with a roundabout 

CARS Funding: $514,000 

Spring Hill: $756,000 

Total: $1,270,000
