FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 15, 2007
KCP&L to start construction on 12th Street
Starting May 16, the north lane of 12th Street from Grand Boulevard to McGee Street will close. This lane closure is necessary to accommodate Kansas City Power & Light's replacement of existing utility vaults in conjunction with the City of Kansas City, Mo., 12th Street streetscape improvement project. This lane closure is estimated to last until mid-June.
KCP&L will be replacing additional vaults, duct banks and manholes from May until this fall. During construction, sections of 12th Street will be reduced to two lanes and pedestrian access and on-street parking will be interrupted.
A map and listing of the City's and KCP&L's construction schedule can be found at www.kcmo.org/cimo.nsf/web/dtconst.
