All lanes of North Oak Trafficway reopened,
Arrowhead Water Main Transmisson Project Phase 2 to be substantially complete by spring
Just in time for the anticipated snow, all lanes of North Oak Trafficway have been reopened as part of the City of Kansas City, Mo., Water Services Department’s installation of the 54-inch Arrowhead Water Transmission Main Project.
“We are pleased that the lane closures have been completed ahead of schedule,” said Acting Water Services Director Terry Leeds. “This project will improve water service in the Northland.”
This $10.8 million project includes the installation of a 54-inch water transmission main along North Oak Trafficway from Kansas City’s water treatment plant at 9 Highway and North Oak Trafficway to Northeast Vivion Road. The new transmission main will increase capacity for the Northland to accommodate growth and improve system reliability. Construction started in the spring of 2010 and is expected to be substantially completed this spring.
The project includes installation of 2 miles of 54-inch water transmission main along North Oak Trafficway from Kansas City’s water plant at 9 Highway and North Oak to Vivion Road.
