Shawnee residents and commuters may notice blocked roads this morning. The city of Shawnee has announced two emergency road closures:
- The eastbound lane of 55th street is closed between Sharon Lane and Goddard Street due to a water main break. The Shawnee Police Department said they were unsure how long the closure would last.
- 55th Street is closed in both directions between Flint and Cody due to downed power lines.
Update: The WaterOne main repair has expanded to a full road closure on 55th Street from Sharon Lane to Ballentine, with work expected to continue into late afternoon, according to the Shawnee Police Department.
