SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -

A sign in western Shawnee is telling drivers everything they need to know about a new street that hasn’t cured enough to be salted this winter.

“You don’t put salt on new concrete,” said Caitlin Gard, Assistant Public Works Director

Clear Creek Parkway is the only concrete street in Shawnee.

Although you can drive on the road, the city wants people to know that they won’t see any salt trucks in snowy weather.

“For snow removal, we are using sand this year,” Gard said. “There’s not a lot of residences out there yet.”

It will take six to 12 months for the concrete to cure.

The sand is safe to drive on, but the city said there are alternate routes to take crossing K-7 Highway.

You can take Clare Road out to W. 71st Street, then take Johnson Drive or Shawnee Mission Parkway. 

If they need to, the city said they’ll put down more sand on Clear Creek Parkway before the snow expected this weekend.
