KCP&L moves transformer from Liberty to substation

KCP&L moved a 480,000 pound transformer Thursday night from Liberty to the Nashua substation near Smithville, Mo., closing roads and causing traffic detours and delays.

It arrived at its destination around 6:15 a.m. At that time, some lanes were still blocked but all roads had reopened.

The map below shows the transformer's route along with photos of its journey and updates.
