Temporary lane closure on 12th Street viaduct
The City of Kansas City, Mo. Capital Projects Department is advising motorists that the spring construction season is about to start and as a result, a temporary lane closure will be made on the 12th Street viaduct starting Monday, Feb. 28.
The roadway, which had two eastbound lanes of traffic and one westbound lane through winter, will be limited to a two-lane configuration as construction begins.
It is anticipated that all four lanes of traffic will be open later this summer.
The 12th Street Bridge is currently in the third and final phase of a construction project designed to refurbish the structure. This work is being managed by the City’s Capital Projects Department.
Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this closure or the 12th Street Bridge construction project should be directed to Sean Demory, communications specialist for the Capital Projects Department, (816) 513-0059.
