BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. – On Wednesday, December 8, construction will resume on the 2011 Community Development Block Grant Program's Downtown Decorative Concrete Crosswalk project on Main Street between 8th, 9th and 10th Streets.
Two-way traffic will be maintained on most of Main Street, but will be shifted over to the north side of the road during construction. On-street parking will be reduced to accommodate the through traffic lanes.
8th and 10th Street will be closed to through traffic, immediately south of Main Street. Traffic will be detoured to 11th Street from Walnut to Main Street. 9th Street will be closed to through traffic, immediately south of Main Street, three to five days later. There may be a time when all three streets are closed to expedite the completion of the project.
This project is scheduled to be completed by December 25; weather pending. Amino Brothers is the contractor for this project.
The City of Blue Springs was designated as an Entitlement Community under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Downtown Decorative Concrete Crosswalk project is fully funded by this grant.
