We have been notified that Kansas City has plans to completely revamp the Broadway Corridor streetscape, including repaving the street, new sidewalks and crosswalks, as well as, new trees and landscaping. It will bring a much needed face lift to our neighborhood, but a big headache and inconvenience while the work is being done. According to plans, crews will begin tearing up our little strip of Broadway, between 39th street and 40th Terrace, sometime in the first week of August. They will be starting on the west side of the street first, then move to the east side of the street during the second half of August, hopefully finishing up by the beginning of September.
Fortunately for us and our customers, we have a rear entrance! During the time Broadway is closed, you will need to use the Washington Street entrance off the rear parking lot. Customers will be able to access Washington Street from 39th street, 40th Terrace just south of the BP gas station, or from the west, on Pennsylvania Street at either 39th Terrace or 40th Street.
It looks like August is going to be a challenge, but we can get through this!
