Evergy has notified the City of Sedalia that beginning at midnight on Tues., Oct. 19 through 5 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, South Engineer Avenue will be closed to through traffic between East 9th Street and East 15th Street to allow for electric utility work in the area.

A significant number of utility workers, vehicles and equipment will be working in and along the roadway resulting in the need for road closure. Travelers will need to plan on using an alternate route during this period as South Engineer Avenue will be closed.

If a resident knows in advance, they will need to leave their home between the hours of midnight, Tuesday and 5 a.m. Wednesday Oct. 20, they are encouraged to park along a nearby side street.

Otherwise, the Evergy crew working in the area will assist them with exiting the work zone during the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20. This work is weather and equipment dependent and as such may be affected by inclement weather or equipment breakdowns.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as Evergy works to improve the electric infrastructure within our community,” a press release read.
