Fairway alerts residents to Mission Road closure coming Friday. Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming issued the following notice to northeast Johnson County residents about a coming detour on Mission Road on Friday: “KCP&L has notified the City of Fairway that a power pole located near 57th Terrace and Mission Road must be replaced in a timely manner for safety reasons. This will necessitate the closing of a small section of Mission Road between 57th Street and 58th Street for most of the day on Friday June 3, 2016 starting about 9:00 a.m. The closing is necessary due to the location of the pole and the equipment needed to complete the job safely. Detour routes will be marked for both northbound and southbound that unfortunately requires traffic to use 57th Street and 58th Street to get around the road closing.”
