City of Joplin Announces Daytime Closure on Connecticut Avenue Starting April 30

Starting Tuesday, April 30, Connecticut Avenue will be closed to traffic just south of 38th Street. This daytime closure begins at 9:00 am and will continue until dusk. Drivers during this time will need to use an alternative north/south route, such as Main Street or Range Line Road. Connecticut Avenue will be open from dusk until 9:00 am each day.

This closure is needed to install stormwater pipes under Connecticut Avenue. The City of Joplin will post signage and message boards alerting drivers to this daytime closure. Work is expected to continue daily through the end of the week but may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

This work is part of the Connecticut widening project between 32nd Street and the bridge over Interstate 44. It is funded through the 2014 Capital Improvement Sales Tax. The City appreciates your patience as these improvements are made for our community.

For questions, please contact Rob Beachner, Capital Improvements Manager, at 417-624-0820, ext. 1543.
