West Campus sanitary sewer improvements
Work begins June 24 along Anderson Avenue between Denison Avenue and 17th Street to improve sanitary sewer capacity in the area. At times during the project, westbound Anderson Avenue will be reduced to one lane. Work should be complete by late July.
Westwood Road water line replacement
Water line replacement along Westwood Road from Walnut Drive to Oak Street and along Oak Street from Ridge Drive to Westwood Road will affect traffic in the area. Westwood Road will be reduced to only northbound traffic at times during the project. Travelers should use 17th Street as a detour. Access to Sunset Zoo will be maintained throughout the project.
North Manhattan Avenue
North Manhattan Avenue will be closed from May 18 to Aug. 18 for construction. Thru traffic should use Tuttle Creek Boulevard or Denison Avenue. Blue Hills Road will be closed starting June 16. Access to the Blue Hills neighborhood will only be from the south on Keen Drive.
Tuttle Creek Boulevard (KDOT mill and overlay project)
A resurfacing project is underway on U.S. Highway 24 (Tuttle Creek Boulevard) from the K-177 junction north to the K-13 junction. Northbound and southbound traffic will be reduced to one open lane in each direction in several mile increments. Expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.
Parks and Recreation Office Relocation (City Hall)
Construction on the north side of City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave., for the Parks and Recreation office relocation began in January. The north entrance to City Hall will remain open during construction; however, we encourage those using ADA-accessible parking spots to park in the rear of the building and use the ADA-accessible southeast entrance. The sidewalk between the fire station and the City Hall front entrance will be blocked during construction.
