City leaders to break ground on GO KC project in Waldo Neighborhood

Post Date:07/19/2018

NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 19, 2018

City leaders will gather in the Waldo neighborhood on Friday to kick off a GO KC project on Wornall Road.

The reconstruction of Wornall Road from 85th to 89th Streets include replacing pavement, curbs and gutters, streetlight upgrades, water lines and storm sewer improvements, and improved pedestrian access with sidewalks on both sides of the roadway. The project will be completed before spring 2019.

6th District Councilmen Scott Taylor and Kevin McManus and project representatives will be on hand at Christ the King Church, 8510 Wornall Rd., at 9 a.m. this Friday, July 20th to break ground on the project.

In April 2017, Kansas City voters approved $800 million in bonds to fund a capital improvements program for streets, sidewalks, flood control and other infrastructure needs over the next 20 years. These Wornall Road improvements are among the first GO KC projects approved by City Council in June 2017.

The City has a website dedicated to citywide GO KC improvements. For media inquiries, contact the Public Works Public Information Officer, Beth Breitenstein, at 816-513-2612.
