JCPRD will be replacing three picnic shelters along the north shore of Shawnee Mission Park Lake. Shelters #5, #6, and #7 are scheduled for demolition in the fall of 2020. The three shelters are being replaced due to their age and condition. The new shelters will comply with accessibility requirements. The shelter pads, walkways, and parking lots near the three shelters are all being replaced as part of the project.
79th Street near the shelters could be intermittently reduced to one lane during demolition, but the contractor does not anticipate any lengthy closures or delays. The accessible fishing pier will remain open during this project
