The Grand Street Bridge located between Kansas Expressway and Park Avenue will close to traffic for approximately three weeks beginning Tuesday morning, Jan 15 for the railway to complete improvements to the railroad crossing.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to seek alternate routes.

Part of the Grand Street Bridge over Jordan Creek Improvement Project, the railroad crossing is one of the final elements of the project awaiting completion.

Currently the road portion of the project is complete and the bridge awaiting minor finishes.

Contractors will be on-site over the next few weeks installing new crossing lights and gates.

Once the crossing and lights are installed, Grand Street will reopen to traffic.

The roadway will remain two lanes until final striping to allow for three lanes can occur in Spring when temperatures warm up.
