Sturges Word Revamps Johnson County Gateway Project Website

KANSAS CITY, Mo. July 30, 2013 — HNTB, an infrastructure solutions firm serving public and private owners and construction contractors, retained Sturges Word Communications to create a responsive website…that informs drivers and industry professionals about a new Kansas Department of Transportation highway reconstruction project, Johnson County Gateway. Reconstruction phases continue through 2017 and include improvements to I-435, I-35 and K-10. SWC previously worked with HNTB on the original website in 2008.

The site content is frequently updated by KDOT and HNTB representatives, giving travelers and stakeholders access to the latest details of the project. Resources in the website include background information, fact sheets, press releases and blog updates. Additionally, custom Google maps show specific routes affected by the project, simplifying navigation through the affected areas. Sturges Word also engaged local video production company Scenic Road Productions to record scripted public awareness videos of the project.
