A section of Cherry Street on the UMKC campus will be closed from Dec. 26 to Jan. 6, 2011, so that the Cherry Street Parking Structure footings and bridgework can be installed and a temporary protected pedestrian walkway put in place. The affected portion of Cherry Street is from 50th Street to Bixby Lane.
Cars travelling south on Cherry from Volker Boulevard must turn right (west) at 50th Street. Only the southbound lane of Cherry Street is open at the westernmost exit of Bixby Lane. Traffic moving north on Cherry Street will be diverted east at 51st Street (in front of the Student Union).
Barricades and signage will alert drivers to these closings.
