(Kansas City, MO) – Weather permitting, construction begins September 3rd on the water main replacement project at 75th and Wornall. It has been a long time in the making for this much needed project, now KC Water will begin to replace century old pipes.
Water mains will be replaced with larger and more durable pipes which will result in fewer water main breaks and fewer service disruptions. Indoor water meters in homes and businesses will be replaced and relocated outside to increase reliability.
KC Water reached out to the Waldo neighborhood to keep everyone up to date. In early August, dozens of people attended a public meeting and few weeks later, KC Water held an open-house for businesses at the Waldo Area Business Association.
Rodriguez Mechanical Contractors, the company contracted to do the work for KC Water, asked business owners and managers for their input and their vote on the best possible route for lane closures.
Traffic signs are in place to help drivers navigate the construction.
With 5.8 miles of new piping to replace, it is one of the largest water main replacement projects currently underway at KC Water.
