KANSAS CITY, Mo. — How hot is it?
Hot enough to damage roads.
On Tuesday, road crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Northwest Missouri Division were called out to a stretch of U.S. Highway 65 near Route K north of Chillicothe after receiving reports of a damaged roadway.
A photo of the damage posted by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department shows the damage spanned both the northbound and southbound lanes of the highway.
MoDOT engineers completed a temporary fix to get the road re-opened, though the damage will require a more permanent repair.
