Potholes force crews to close section of Johnson County highway


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Crews worked to fill potholes along a four-mile stretch of U.S. 69 Hwy Wednesday afternoon.

The potholes were so bad, the highway was closed from West 179th to West 199th Streets, near Stillwell. The Johnson County Sheriff’s office tweeted pictures of the damaged highway.

The tweet said crews are working to repair the potholes as quickly as possible, and a picture from a KC Scout traffic camera showed a work truck on the highway near West 183rd Street.
