FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 7, 2005
Intersection closing at 13th and Main streets
Utility replacement work for the downtown entertainment district will close the intersection of 13th and Main streets to all traffic. The intersection will close Sept. 8, at 9 a.m.
Main Street from 12th Street to 13th Street will be temporarily converted to a two-way street for local traffic only. Two-way local traffic on Main Street will allow motorists to enter and exit the One Kansas City Place parking garage and provide access to the Midland Theatre’s box office. Utility replacement work will continue at this intersection and also on 13th Street from Baltimore Avenue to Main Street until late November.
As construction continues on the new downtown entertainment district and the Sprint Center, motorists should be aware that while many streets remain open, there are fewer traffic lanes available, and additional time and consideration should be given to downtown travel routes.
