Traffic Garden News

The new Roeland Park Traffic Garden at R Park aims to teach children about road safety in a safe environment! Although the current playground is still under construction (open spring 2023), the Traffic Garden is ready for use. Check out this fun video for a look at Mayor Michael Poppa, Roeland Park learning a very important lesson from a kindergartener!

Canterbury Street Reconstruction Project

In order to prepare for the Canterbury Street Reconstruction Project, the water main on Canterbury St. between 47th St. – 48th St. will need to be replaced and relocated. WaterOne plans to start this work on February 6th, which will take approximately 2 months to complete. 

Canterbury St will be closed to thru traffic during the project. They will be laying the main down the center of the Northbound lane and the street will be closed within construction limits as they progress. Residents will have access to their driveways but will have to adapt to getting to it from the North or South depending on where we are with the installation of the new water main.

Brief water outages of less than 4 hours will be necessary. In order for you to be notified of outages in your neighborhood, please go to www.NotifyJoCo.org to register your contact information and location preferences. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the streets in Roeland Park!
