Construction Update for Waldo Street Improvements

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

Wornall Road in the heart of Waldo seems to be  a never ending construction site, and will continue to be for the next few years.  Here's a summary of what's going on:

*This week, contractors will start drilling around 75th and Wornall.  The work is related to the bigger (and much needed) 75th/Wornall improvement project.  There will be lane closures on both sides of Wornall from approximately 74th to 79th St area for several days.

*The 75th/Wornall improvement project involves a redesign of the parking lot in front of Waldo Pizza; creating a new Trolley Track extension (dedicated path) outside that lot; updated sidewalks, crosswalks and lighting;  plus installation of islands to slow down traffic at that congested intersection. Major work on this project is slated to start early next year and finish in late 2020. 

*The "sewer separation project" is underway along W 77th and W 85th, Grand and Summit Streets, bringing new storm and sanitary lines underground and some sewer line rehab.  This project is ongoing through 2019.

*The 'Smart Sewer Project" involves water main line replacement along 75th St from Holmes to State Line, beginning in mid 2019 through 2020.

Our tax dollars at work!  Yes, it is inconvenient to drive, bike or walk around road closures in these areas however, all of this work is so necessary.  I'm especially excited about the 75th/Wornall improvements as that is such a congested intersection. It is the 'front door' of Waldo! After the project is completed,  area will look much more inviting to pedestrians and help traffic flow better.

Please be courteous and aware of construction workers in the area as they work to make our neighborhood better for all!  Have a positive attitude, focusing on the outcome rather than the temporary inconvenience.
