Please find an update below from the project at 51st and Oak:
On Monday we will be initiating the next phase of our traffic closures. KCPL has informed us that there is additional work in 51st that will not allow the westernmost drive lanes to remain open.
This closure is approximately one week ahead of schedule and will allow our crews to begin work a bit sooner as well. As such, please note the attached plan depicting the closure, which will remain in place until the utility work in the street is completed ( scheduled for November 30th ). As things change, we will provide additional updates.
You may have noticed some water leakage in Brookside. This work is not part of our project, and will be repaired by City crews. We have requested that they provide us a window of time in which they will make these repairs. They have shared with us that their repairs will be made on Tues or Weds of next week. Beyond this, we don’t have many details.
Thank you for your continued patience and support of the businesses along 51st Street. Please note that during this time, all access to these businesses will be off Oak Street. The next several weeks will be especially challenging, but we have been pleased to see so much traffic – you are clearly supporting them which is great to see.
