The northeast corner of West and Washington streets will be closed to pedestrians starting this Monday, August 22 so that the construction of the Cultural Trail may be completed in this area.
Construction crews will have signs up on the northwest corner of West and Washington streets directing east bound people to go south. There will also be signs up on the southeast corner directing north bound people (and those that followed the detour on the northwest corner) to go east and cross at Missouri. People coming from the north will be directed to go east down Robert Orr through the middle of the Government Center. Access to the stairs on the south west corner of the building will remain open at all times.
Work has begun on the northwest corner of Senate and Washington. There is no longer be a safe crossing west of Senate. People are being directed to the northeast corner and are asked to cross Washington Street east of Senate. This will be the new permanent route once the trail is completed.
Thanks for your continued patience as we work to complete the Cultural Trail and keep pedestrians and cyclists safe in our city.
