Water main breaks at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Mission Road

Looks like commuters could be in for a slog along Shawnee Mission Parkway this evening.

The city of Fairway sent out a notice this afternoon alerting residents to a broken water main near the intersection of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Mission Road. The message is copied below:

There has been a water main break at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Mission Road.  WaterOne is currently working on repairing the break.  East and west bound traffic on Shawnee Mission Parkway will be effected this evening and possibly through Thursday morning rush hour.  If possible please use an alternate route.
