North Hampton Road closes
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is alerting residents that new detour routes have been posted for the North Hampton bridge closure.
Construction crews have closed the road between Missouri Highway 152 and Northwest Tiffany Park Road in preparation for demolition and replacement of the North Hampton Bridge over Brush Creek. Completion of the project is scheduled for fall 2009.
Workers will replace the existing bridge with a concrete arch bridge and reconstruct the approach roadway.
Drivers wishing to access the closed area should take State Highway N to Tiffany Park Road.
All construction and demolition work is done as long as the weather permits. Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are reminded to use caution in areas adjacent to active construction sites.
Media inquiries about this issue should be directed to Sean Demory, communications specialist in the Capital Improvements Management Office, (816) 513-0059.
