Heat Kills Kansas City Streets, Too

City Hall promised a pothole fix but there's little evidence of improvement beyond Ward Parkway . . . Meanwhile, ongoing extreme weather threatens this town . . .

Extreme temperatures in Kansas City could mean pavement 'blow-ups'

LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -- As temperatures begin to closer to 100 degrees across the metro, motorists should be aware that the extreme heat can cause pavement "blow-ups" on roadways, the Missouri Department of Transportation says. A pavement blow-up occurs when the roadway surface expands at a crack or joint where moisture has seeped in.
