Kansas City Highway Construction Zones: Slow Down and Practice Attentive Driving Techniques
Construction zones can be frustrating. Lately it seems like some areas of Kansas City have been constantly under construction. The area, we discuss today in Overland Park has been under construction for the better part of five years. As frustrating as it has been, it is important to remember to slow down in construction zones to avoid serious injury accidents. Now police are urging Kansas City motorists to use extreme caution when traveling on highways over the summer, especially oon I-435 in Overlnd Park, Kansas. The five mile stretch between Quivira Road and Roe Avenue has already seen over 80 injury accidents in 2012 because of constant construction work being done on the highway. Because the lanes are constantly being worked on, the shoulder of the highway has been limited and the construction barrels have made the passable lanes even smaller.
