Repairs finished on Midtown KCMO sinkhole; road reopens

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A 20-foot sinkhole in Midtown Kansas City that took more than a week to repair and cost more than $700,000 was caused by "aging infrastructure" and heavy rainfall, according to KC Water officials.

If that's the actual cost, I think I would have left it.... the millions of convention goers would love looking down into it.

^^^ good point, it would have been a great attraction!

$700,000 my ass, all they did was fill in the hole and cover it with asphalt, Jesus Christ man, who’s running this show around here.

This smells more like the $800 hammer scam to me.

Yep, give me about 120 tons of 3/4" clean, 2 tons cold-patch from our friendly mob wannabes at the South side and it'd be done in a day in equivalent condition to adjacent road. Only cost you $50k for my services.

they probably had to change out pipes and all sorts of shit too. The worst part is there's been little to no infrastructure work done in this city for decades and all this deferred maintenance costs 100xs more to repair after if breaks. We focused on streetcars, art exhibits at swope park for nobody, and buying shit on amazon that the city doesn't even realize it has to maintain itself
