Blue River Road Closure
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Public Works Department is advising motorists that Blue River Road, between Bannister Road and Chestnut Drive, has been temporarily closed due to a slide in the road’s base. It is anticipated that the extent of the damage to the road is such that the closure will last for an extended period of time.
During the closure, access to local soccer fields immediately south of Bannister Road will be maintained, as the section of Blue River Road that lies between Bannister Road and the soccer fields will remain open to local traffic.
Media inquiries about this closure should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer for the Public Works Department, 816-513-2659.
