On February 6, 2024, KDOT delivered their Subsurface Investigation Report to Bel Aire staff. The report, accessible on the City’s website, https://www.belaireks.gov/WoodlawnKDOTreport, provides comprehensive insights into the test results, identified failures, and proposed remedial options. The Bel Aire Governing Body received a copy of the report at their regular meeting on February 6th.
City staff will share the report with all parties involved in the project, continue reviewing the report and meeting with KDOT over the next couple of weeks. The council will also review the information and begin deliberations on a plan of action later this month.
We understand there may be questions from citizens or the media but cannot comment further until all parties have thoroughly reviewed the report, had their questions answered and given ample opportunity to discuss the remedies.
We would like to sincerely thank Secretary Reed and his KDOT team for spending the time and resources necessary to complete such an expansive study. This report will give us the information needed to understand the failures, make repairs, and ensure the citizens of Bel Aire receive the road they deserve. We will keep you informed as additional information is available and next steps identified.
