Downtown waterline construction begins

Only southbound traffic allowed between Seventh, Ninth

May 22, 2006


Motorists should be prepared to encounter major construction as they enter downtown today.

Construction crews have narrowed Massachusetts Street to a one-lane road between Seventh and Ninth streets as they begin to replace an approximately 100-year old waterline.

During the next seven weeks, that portion of Massachusetts Street will be open only to southbound traffic. Then crews will switch sides and the portion of Massachusetts Street only will be open to northbound traffic. Parking only will be allowed on one side of the street. Sidewalks will be open on both sides of the street.

The project is expected to last until mid-September.

For any more on this story, see the 6News reports at 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunflower Broadband's Channel 6 and pick up a copy of Tuesday's Journal-World.

Had to be done. I hope it goes as planned.

What's the hurry? I thought the hippies downtown only drank espresso lattes at the coffee house (not Starbucks) and very rarely bathed.

Oh no, us hippies are too busy aborting fetuses, converting children to homosexuality, and destroying the morals of america to take a coffee break.
