Water main repair begins Tuesday morning on Shawnee Mission Parkway

Heads up if you get a late start to work Tuesday and Shawnee Mission Parkway is part of your morning commute: Crews will begin work to replace a temporary patch to a broken water main near the intersection of Pawnee Lane and Shawnee Mission Parkway around 8 a.m.

Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming sent out a message Monday informing residents that the work will impact traffic flow in the westbound lanes of Shawnee Mission Parkway, though crews anticipate being able to finish before rush hour traffic begins Tuesday evening.
