West side of Lake Olathe closed through July 5

Post Date:05/16/2018

Beginning Thursday, May 17, through Thursday, July 5, the west side of Lake Olathe will be closed to the public from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. due to blasting. The lake, parking areas, shelter and playground are included in the weekday closures. The area will be accessible daily after 5 p.m., on holidays and weekends. Lakeshore Drive will remain open through construction.

Blasting is required to install new infrastructure at Lake Olathe. The homes in the area will be outside the blast radius and will not be impacted. All work being completed will be weather permitting.

Thank you for your patience as the City continues to make significant improvements to the area as part of the Lake Olathe Master Plan. A map of phase one of the Lake Olathe project is available online.
