KC Public Works provides a short update on major road construction at various sites on Wornall Road.
75th & Wornall: Public Works is working to complete utility relocations in advance of construction. The work underway is being performed by contractors hired by AT&T. The city is also working directly with MoDOT to complete the federally required audit of the right-of-way acquisition process. This project begins at 74th and runs to 79th & Wornall.
Red Bridge & Wornall: This is a Parks & Recreation project. Storm sewer work is completed for the project and contractors are now working on the road’s foundation. Wornall Road is expected to open by November 3. A new 16-inch water main will also be installed along Red Bridge from Wornall to Holmes.
Improvements to Wornall from Gregory to 74th: This project is currently on hold pending funds for the $5.2 million design and build. This also encompasses 72nd Street.
“We are incredibly excited about the progress made so far on Wornall and looking forward to future work to help better connect residents in their communities. When the work is completed, it will benefit residents for years to come,” says Sherae Honeycutt, spokesperson for KC Public Works.
