Last November I wrote a blog post about lane closures along Wornall, south of 75th St, due to gas lines being replaced.
Surprise! Still happening this year!
I spoke with Mario Vasquez from the KCMO Public Works department recently–he explained that Spire Energy is still working on installing a new gas main line along Wornall. The work will continue for the next few weeks as the company is also doing the roadway patching after the new line is in place.
In addition to this work, there was a water main break recently at 7814 Wornall so the water department had to repair the leak and patch up the holes. That break added to the street closures.
There is so much going on along the stretch of Wornall from 75th to 85th Streets that KCMO has created a new page on their website to keep the public updated:
Expect lane closures for the next several weeks and…just plan on taking an alternate route if possible to save yourself some traffic hassles!
