Troost Avenue Bridge construction restricts traffic through July
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising motorists that beginning Monday, May 16, construction on and around the Troost Avenue Bridge at Brush Creek will restrict traffic to two lanes on Troost Avenue between Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard and Volker Boulevard until early August.
The $13.5 million project will replace the existing Troost Avenue Bridge and provide pedestrian access along Troost Avenue. The project received $9 million in federal stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The Capital Projects Department is managing the project for the City’s Water Services Department. Construction is scheduled for completion in late 2012.
Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this project should be directed to Sean Demory, Capital Projects Department, at 816-513-0059 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
