McCrum Park on target for April reopening
Crews from WaterOne have spent the weeks since the McCrum Park water tower was removed engaged in the time-consuming process of digging out the concrete footings that anchored the enormous structure for 60 years.
Prairie Village Public Works Director Bruce McNabb said work is on target to meet the scheduled April re-opening date for the park, and that southern parts of the park could reopen sooner once potential dangers have been mitigated.
McNabb said WaterOne is also assessing whether some of the electrical wiring that was hung around the water tower could be moved underground.
After all of the concrete footing has been removed, crews will still need to resettle the ground where the tower stood.
