KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Blasting of rock near Route 150 and Botts Road will halt traffic for up to 15 minutes once daily beginning Monday, February 28 through Friday, March 4, weather permitting.
The delays will allow workers to break apart and remove rock to build a new intersection at Route 150 and Botts Road. The blasting operation, which will halt traffic for no longer than 15 minutes once each day, will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Once the contractor is ready to set off a charge, both eastbound and westbound traffic on Route 150 will be halted to allow for the blast and to clean up any debris that may fall onto the roadway. Westbound traffic will be diverted or slowed to a halt beginning at Route 71. Eastbound traffic will be diverted or halted at Route D.
Traffic at Prospect Avenue and Thunderbird Road west of the construction site and Andrews Road east of the site will also be halted during the blasting.
