    Greetings, I was wondering if anyone knows what is going on at 435 and Woodend road? For my job I pass by there and I see heavy equipment and it looks like they are building a new low water bridge. Has this already been mentioned and I missed it? I was just curious if anyone has noticed this or has heard of what is going on?

    Dave,

    Long time no see. Actually, all they are doing there is running a pipeline under the river. Believe it or not, they are piping water from the Missouri River, under the Kansas, out to Johnson County for the municipal supply. Once it's done, the place should look pretty much like it did before.
