Buchanan County Road Delay

A change for a major intersection for motorists heading to Saint Joseph or Kansas City has been delayed again.

The “Y” that divides U.S. 59 and Missouri Highway 45 was originally planned to be converted to a four-way stop by September 15th. It was then delayed until moved to mid-October and again until mid-November. MODOT Northwest District Customer Relations Manager Melissa Black says the main reason for the delay is with the sign contractors.
