KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Road construction is on the move near downtown Kansas City with changes starting Tuesday afternoon.
Crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation reopened Third Street below Broadway Boulevard before the Tuesday morning rush hour.
But with the progress comes another closure.
Crews will close Fourth Street between Washington Street and Broadway Boulevard Tuesday afternoon. The portion of Broadway Boulevard under the Buck O’Neil Bridge that connects to Fifth Street will also permanently close.
Drivers are told to use Third Street to get around the area.
MoDOT released the image below to help drivers visualize the traffic changes.
The green line represents the new Third Street, which drivers can use, according to MoDOT. The red line represents the closure of Broadway and Fourth Street.
When the entire project is finished, Kansas City will have a new Buck O’Neil bridge connecting the northland to downtown.
The cost of the project is around $220 million.
