The City of Kansas City will continue to work on Wornall Road between 85th Street and 77th Street. Specifically, this week Blue Nile Contractors will be working near 83rd Street/83rd Terrace to replace a sewer line, while work continues southward near 78th and 77th Terrace to replace the water main. One lane of traffic will continue to remain open in both directions at all times, however, driveways may be temporarily blocked.
Meanwhile, City contractors will be on site starting Thursday, May 17th (weather permitting) to begin some drilling work on areas along Wornall Road between 74th and 79th Streets and an area on 75th Street west of Wyandotte Street. This work is related to geotechnical investigations needed for the design of the 75th and Wornall Road improvements project.
The drilling work will involve some moving lane closures, as there will be large drilling machines collecting soil samples along the project area. These drilling activities are slated to occur this Thursday and Friday, and Thursday, May 31st (weather permitting). Drilling should last for about an hour at each site and will only occur between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. At least one lane of traffic will be open in both directions at all times.
