Section of Ward Road Set to Close June 23

***UPDATE: This section of southwest Ward Road is now open to two-way traffic as of Mon., Sept. 13. Construction continues at the site, and updates will be provided in the future on completion of work at this location.

***UPDATE: This section of southwest Ward Road is now expected to remain closed until mid-September, weather permitting. The delay is due to utility conflicts.***
A section of southwest Ward Road from southwest Lea Drive to southwest Daney Drive is set to close on Wednesday, June 23, and will remain closed for approximately two months. The closure is necessary as part of the Lea Drive Stormwater Improvements project to help alleviate structural flooding.

The southbound detour route is west on southwest Longview Road, south on southwest Pryor Road, and east on southwest Scherer Road. The northbound detour route is west on southwest Scherer Road, north on southwest Pryor Road, and east on southwest Longview Road. Drivers are encouraged to follow the signed detour route due to additional construction on southwest Scherer Road east of southwest Ward Road, and at southwest Scherer Road and 291 Highway.

Southwest Lea Drive is one of 12 locations in Lee’s Summit where stormwater projects will be completed to help alleviate structural flooding. The project includes improvements to Cedar Creek and the culvert that crosses under Ward Road, as well as improvements to a small system from the north side of Lea Drive that connects to Cedar Creek. Funding is provided by the 2017 Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
