April 26, 2023

PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg is providing a progress update on the East Quincy Street Reconstruction Project, including what work has been completed and what is to come.


With 176 working days remaining on this 300-working-day contract, the East Quincy project is still on target to be completed late this summer, weather permitting. This is consistent with the City’s original projection of Aug.-Sept. 2023.


Work recently completed:

Crews have finished widening the East Quincy and Rouse intersection; adding turn lanes, doing concrete paving in the intersection, and finishing the Franklin-Rouse road tie-in approach. Utility work completed to date includes replacing a section of a 50-year-old 24” water main, and the stormwater collection system east of the railroad tracks. Mass grading and subgrade preparation east of the railroad tracks is also complete. Additionally, crews have completed sidewalk-related work, new drive approaches, and applied joint sealant and pavement markings on completed pavement.


Work in progress:

The City’s contractor is preparing to pave between Rouse Street and the railroad tracks. Road crews are working on retaining walls around railroad tracks, and utility work is underway on the new water main installation and water service line connections, in addition to storm piping work on the west side of the railroad tracks.


The City appreciates the patience of residents and motorists as work on this important project continues. Additional questions or concerns regarding the East Quincy Project can be made to or by contacting the Public Works & Utility office at (620) 240-5126.




The mission of the City of Pittsburg is to provide exceptional services, facilities and activities with integrity, professionalism, excellent customer service and a commitment to economic vitality.
