Update on the retaining wall on 119th Street

Overland Park Public Works engineers are working on a plan to repair the stone wall on 119th Street.  They are in the process of hiring a contractor to remove the debris and provide temporary bracing for the hill behind the wall. 

Once the debris is removed the drainage system behind the wall will be repaired to allow for proper drainage of the ground.  Indications are that the drains were not functioning properly and contributed to the collapse of the wall.  Again, everything is still in a preliminary stage of planning.  More details as they become available.
