Project Description

As our infrastructure continues to age, we proactively replace water mains in conjunction with City projects to ensure safe, reliable, high-quality water service to our community with superior service. WaterOne will be upgrading 5300' of infrastructure along Roe Avenue between 67th Street and 75th Street The project is in conjunction with the City of Prairie Village CARS program, which schedules infrastructure upgrades ahead of road improvement work in order to avoid unnecessary excavation and maximize ratepayer dollars. WaterOne's work is scheduled to begin in February of 2018 and last until June 2018.

This project will temporarily affect traffic to neighborhoods adjacent to Roe Avenue. Every effort will be made to provide multiple detours and access points for local traffic, and WaterOne will continue posting regular updates for residents below. We appreciate your patience as we complete this necessary upgrade to your water infrastructure.

Roe Avenue will be accessible during the weekend and after 2 pm during the week. Please follow detours signs. Thank you for your patience as we install new infrastructure.
