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 St. and 75th St. 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.

2/13/2018: ROE AVE CLOSURE

From February 15th & 16th, and then again on the 19th - 22nd, Roe Ave. will be closed from 71st Street to 79th Street so WaterOne can install a new water main at 75th Street. Roe Ave. will be closed during the working hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and lanes will be restricted at 75th Street.

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