Mission Road to reopen to two-way traffic by end of this week

Those “road closed” signs near 87th Street on Mission Road will soon enough be replaced by “one-lane only” signs.

The contractor working on the stormwater project told staff from Leawood and Prairie Village late last week that they planned to have the Mission reopened to one-lane of northbound and southbound traffic by the end of this week. The road has been closed to through traffic since the first week of the month, at which point detour routes were established at 83rd and 95th Streets.

The entire project is supposed to be complete by mid-July.
