Drivers on Shawnee Mission Parkway will spend the next several weeks dealing with a storm sewer project.
The work to replace a one-mile stretch of storm sewers in Fairway is expected to begin Tuesday.
The work will take place during daylight hours on weekdays between Roe Avenue and Mission Road. As part of the project, crews will remove and replace existing storm sewer inlets.
That stretch of Shawnee Mission Parkway is a heavily-traveled route connecting Johnson County to the Country Club Plaza. Drivers should expect delays during the project.
Drivers should anticipate one lane in one direction to be closed at a time, with some closures remaining overnight to protect areas where inlets are removed.
Signs and cones will guide drivers through the work area. Message boards will announce the lane closures.
The project is scheduled to be completed by late October, weather permitting.
