Friday Greetings,

• The river level due to this year’s rains, their effect on the level of the Missouri River and the hydrostatic pressure that has resulted continues to create problems on the City’s streets, particularly in the Paseo Industrial District. On Monday morning, July 8, the front wheels of a large truck sank into the street as it was traveling northbound on Bedford between Taney and Vernon Street (see pictures). After the truck was towed out of the sink hole, Public Works staff observed the hole created and determined that a large concrete storm sewer pipe had separated at the joint, causing the void under the pavement. Ground water is nearly to the top of the pipe, and until the river stage level drops, repairs cannot be made. A portion of the northbound lane will remain closed until pipe repairs and street restoration are completed.

• On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, as a contractor was excavating to install a new water service line near Armour Road and Buchanan Street, a water break occurred to a major water line that runs along Armour Road. The difficulty in repairing this break has made clear the need to replace a total of six water valves in the Armour Road area. Kissick Construction Company is scheduled to begin replacing the valves on Sunday at approximately 4:00 a.m. Preparation work, including excavations at each location, will begin on Friday, July 12, and continue on Saturday. The City has coordinated with businesses that will be affected by this work.
