Overland Park – Take the plunge, back to school special; Shifting lanes in OP

Let Fido cool off this summer at the annual pooch plunge.

From 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, at Young’s Pool, 8421 W. 77th Street, bring your family dog. Only dogs are allowed to swim.

Sorry dogs rule, people drool.

To protect each dog, as well as patrons, proof of current core vaccinations for your pet is required in order to enter the facility.

Rules include you must clean up after your pet, no swimming allowed except for dogs and no retractable leashes. The cost is $5 per dog.

Now for us two-legged folks, take advantage of the two-week back to school special.

You can rule at the city’s community centers. For all new annual memberships that are paid in full, you will get 10 percent off. For this limited time offer to Matt Ross and Tomahawk Ridge centers, your membership must be purchased between Aug. 15 and Aug. 31.

Shifting lanes in OP

One major road closure reopens and another to change your route.

The intersection of College Boulevard and Antioch reopened Monday, ahead of schedule. It was closed for complete reconstruction as part of the $8.3 million project to widen Antioch from four to six lanes.

For those who have been maneuvering U.S. 69 between 103rd Street and I-35, get ready on Aug. 13.

Friday, the off ramp for northbound U.S. 69 onto 95th Street will reopen at about 3 p.m. Later that afternoon, the off ramp at 87th Street for northbound traffic will close. It will reopen in November.
The ramp work is part of $82.3 million widening of U.S. 69 from I-35 to about I-435.
