Mission makes progress on sinkhole repair, expects road to reopen Monday



MISSION, Kan. — Crews spent hours in the heat working to repair a sinkhole that formed near West 55th Street and Woodson Road, forcing crews to close the intersection on Wednesday.

Pictures tweeted by the city show the damaged 15-inch metal pipe that rusted and collapsed. Mission said the pipe is decades old.

Crews removed the damaged section of the pipe and are working to replace it. They will then repave the damaged section of the street.

The area is expected to reopen on Monday.
