Why did KU build a $6 million boathouse along the Kansas River, in which they don’t compete anymore? They’ve been competing at the Wyandotte County Lake.
The KU rowing team can’t use the river for regattas for the next two years because of the construction of the Kansas Turnpike bridges on Interstate 70. They will return to the river after the construction ends. In the meantime, the team still practices on the river.
