Water main break on Shawnee Mission Parkway

FAIRWAY, Kan. — A second water main break has been  reported on Shawnee Mission Parkway, just days after another was fixed.

The Fairway Police Department says this is not the first time multiple water main breaks have been reported on that particular street within days of repairs being made on initial breaks. This time a water main break was reported on Monday in the eastbound lanes of the street in front of 3801 Shawnee Mission Parkway.

WaterOne said they would be shutting down the eastbound lanes near the break and all traffic would be down to one lane both directions while crews are working.  It does not appear they will be finished before rush hour Monday evening.
