Construction to Academy Ave. and Improvements to MCE

Academy Avenue-

Starting Monday, May 9, traffic on Academy Avenue will be one-way westbound in one lane from Maize Road to Khedive, as shown on the accompanying map. School buses will continue to follow their regular routes. Please consider how this may affect your daily traffic.


The Kansas Department of Transportation is scheduled to conduct work on Academy Avenue in Maize through September. The work will be conducted six days a week until the end of the school year. Lane closures but not full road closures should be expected. The work is part of Academy Arts District improvements. 


Maize Central Elementary - 

The entire MCE parking lot will be redone (new asphalt) from June 20-June 27. They will not work on June 25 and 26. 


In addition to the schedule for asphalt repairs, crack sealing and seal coating that Cornejo will perform this summer on the existing parking lot, they will also construct the new east parking expansion (grassy area east of the school).  This project will begin after school is out with the completion date around the end of July (weather cooperating).    


Also, be aware that construction to renovate our playground will begin shortly after school is out.
