Middle deck of 12th Street Viaduct to close Jan. 16
The middle deck of the 12th Street Viaduct will be closed for structural repairs beginning Monday, Jan. 16. This closure will affect eastbound traffic on the middle deck of the viaduct from Hickory Street to Beardsley Road. This closure is anticipated to last until early 2007.
Officials from the City of Kansas City, Mo., Public Works Department suggest that motorists needing to access Beardsley Road use the following detour route:
From West 12th Street, head north on Hickory Street, then turn east on Union Avenue. Then take Union Avenue northeast to Beardsley Road.
This closure will not affect the upper deck of the 12th Street Viaduct which connects downtown Kansas City, Mo., with the West Bottoms district.
Progress on this and other capital improvements projects can be monitored by visiting the public access link located on the Capital Improvements Management Office’s Web site (www.kcmo.org/cimo).
