Detour alert, Villagers.
The city of Prairie Village has closed Somerset Drive at Nall Avenue to through traffic until November 6.
The move comes as crews begin significant street repairs along Somerset Drive from Roe Avenue to Nall Avenue.
Crews will be re-paving the asphalt and making curb and sidewalk repairs. They will also be realigning Somerset Drive at the Nall Avenue intersection, opening it up to make turning from Nall onto Somerset safer. At present, the turning radius for northbound traffic on Nall to turn right onto Somerset is extremely tight, said Prairie Village City Administrator Quinn Bennion.
“This will improve visibility and make turning safer,” he said.
The closure of Somerset has initially been scheduled for Tuesday, but was delayed as work on repaving Rosewood Street neared completion.
