Fairway police issue update on Mission Road project, say water main work is nearing end


Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming issued a statement Friday regarding progress on the water main replacement project that has led to the closure of Mission Road for the past months:

WaterOne is ever closer to completing their part of the water main replacement on Mission Rd in Fairway. On Friday May 27, 2016 they finished pouring the concrete at Eastvale and connecting the new water main to the one on West 61st St. The new main is installed all the way to West 63rd Street and crews will be doing connections at the side streets next week with a goal of being done by Friday June 3rd weather permitting of course. The side streets targeted next week are West 61st Terrace, West 62nd Street, and West 63rd Street

Over the long Memorial Day weekend WaterOne Crews will move as many road barriers as possible to allow traffic on Mission Road to move safely and freely. WaterOne hopes this will help reduce traffic in the neighborhoods, at least over the weekend, and get the Fairway Pool Season off to a great start.
