Liggett Road is
Now Open! 

February 15, 2008 (KANSAS CITY, MO) – Liggett Road in eastern Jackson County was reopened this morning.  It was recently scheduled to reopen at 3 o’clock this afternoon. The road is the only east-west connector between U.S. Highway 40 to the north and Colbern Road to the south.

Some work still needs to be completed when weather permits, but it will not require closing Liggett Road to traffic.  The remaining work will be intermittent and only require temporary lane closures. Motorists can expect some delays when the ongoing construction continues, but flagmen and signage will clearly indicate the lane closures.

The remaining work on Liggett Road is scheduled to be completed by May. The road was originally closed in May of 2007 and was not expected to reopen until spring 2008.
