Prairie Village officials are considering a plan to raise the elevation of Mission Road between 67th and 69th streets to alleviate flooding from nearby Brush Creek that has stranded motorists and damaged nearby homes.

The southbound lane of Mission Road will be closed for several weeks starting April 29 while construction crews make street repairs, according to Leawood officials.

The city announced the roadwork Wednesday, saying the closure on Mission Road will stretch from 119th to 123rd streets.

The J.M. Fahey Construction Company will be replacing storm sewers, curb and asphalt along the road.

Motorists will still be able to drive northbound on Mission while the work goes on.

For southbound traffic, the detour will follow State Line Road.
