5th Street & Grand Boulevard Closure Starts Monday

Closures and Traffic Changes Necessary to Accommodate Track Work

Fifth Street will close starting Monday, November 17 for 10 days from Grand Boulevard to just east of Walnut while KC Streetcar Constructors builds the curved track in the intersection of 5th Street and Grand Boulevard.

This closure will remain in effect until November 26. Additionally, Grand will be open to southbound traffic only from Monday, November 17 through Wednesday, November 19.

Starting November 19, Grand Boulevard, from 5th Street to 3rd Street, will be local access only from 3rd Street. Businesses and parking lots on Grand Boulevard will remain accessible from 3rd Street.

5th Street from Walnut to Delaware will be open to two-way traffic during these closures. A map depicting these closures can be found on the KC Streetcar website at https://bit.ly/1zVjCJ2.

In order to accommodate this schedule and lessen the length of public impact, track crews will work 12-hour shifts, seven days a week. All work is weather dependent.
