KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Recent rains haven’t done any favors for road conditions.
A collection of potholes along the northbound lanes of U.S. 69 Highway has forced the closure of the northbound lanes between 179th Street and 199th Street in south Johnson County, Kansas.
The Johnson County Sheriff tweeted photos of the potholes, which developed in an area already undergoing road construction.
