Final phase of North Amity Avenue project begins Monday
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising motorists that the next series of road closures beginning Monday, June 20 will mark the final phase of major construction activity on North Amity Avenue.
Starting Monday morning, North Amity Avenue will close fully between Northwest 86th Terrace and Highway 152, including a full closure of the intersection of Northwest 87th Terrace and North Amity Avenue. This closure will allow the City’s contractor to open North Amity Avenue to traffic by mid-August. Flashing motorist alert signs will be used to provide advance warning of these closures.
“We recognize the inconvenience this poses to area drivers,” said Capital Projects Department Director Pat Klein. “These closures will allow our crews to move faster and more efficiently, providing residents and motorists with the modern, safe roadway that they should expect from the City of Kansas City, Mo.”
The North Amity Avenue improvements will replace the current roadway with a four lane improved road with four foot bicycle lanes, curbs and sidewalks between Northwest Barry Road and Missouri Highway 152. In addition, culverts will be replaced at Northwest 86th Terrace and Northwest 87th Terrace.
The Capital Projects Department managed the design and construction of this project for the City’s Public Works Department. Construction on this phase of the project is scheduled for completion in mid-August.
Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this project should be directed to Sean Demory, Capital Projects Department, at 816-513-0059 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
