Wornall Road is one of the most traveled street in the Brookside/Waldo area. I avoid driving on Wornall south of Gregory through 85th St–the road is very narrow and usually always congested.
You’ve probably noticed that Wornall is now down to two lanes, roughly between 79th and 83rd Terrace with some sort of construction going on.
I called KCMO to find out what was going on. The City has contracted with Infra Source to replace the gas lines. Expect this area of Wornall to have just two lanes for at least the next thirty days while the company completes it’s work.
Alternate routes include Main St, Ward Parkway, Oak and State Line.
If you must drive along Wornall during the construction, please be considerate of the road workers, other drivers and allow for extra time. It is an inconvenience but not worth a case of road rage!
