The City of Independence announced today construction for the Gudgell Avenue Water Main Replacement Project will begin on Monday, Jan. 10, and it is anticipated that the project will be completed in Summer 2022. This area was prioritized for water main replacement given 28 breaks occurred within the area over the last 10 years. This resulted in thousands of dollars of damage to pavement along Gudgell Avenue.
We ask drivers to be mindful and cautious around the construction area. Please keep in mind that Gudgell Avenue traffic between Dodgion Avenue and Kings Highway will be impacted during the water main replacement. With construction starting at Kings Highway, it is requested that residents avoid the intersection of Gudgell and Kings Highway if possible until construction has moved out of the area. Traffic control measures will be on site to assist with directing residents through the construction zone for the duration of the project.
