The entire walk will take place on sidewalks, and no streets on campus will be closed.

More than 3,000 walkers are expected to participate in the free event. There is no charge to walk.

Theis Park is located at the intersection of Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. and Oak St., east of the Plaza and south of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer along the UMKC route to provide direction and support, contact Troy Lillebo at lillebot@umkc.edu.

Rockhill Parking Garage — Charlotte Street partial closure

By , March 13, 2017 5:07 pm

rockhill-garageKCMO Water Services has a contractor making repairs to the storm mains and a sink hole on Charlotte Street between 52nd and 53rd streets.  We apologize for the short notice, but the city failed to let us know the start date for this project.

Due to this construction, drivers are asked to enter the garage at the south entrance off of Charlotte and exit the garage on the north exit.  Please see the photo for reference.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope the construction is completed soon!
