At Monday's City Commission Meeting, Public Works director Jeff Woodward submitted 2 requests for street closures around Roosevelt School. Both requests were approved and Walnut between Avenue A and Avenue B will be closed from around June 16th to no later than August 8thto accommodate the Roosevelt school addition and remodel project. Residents will have access from the south end of the closure, and the one way signs will be covered for the duration of the Walnut street closure. Chestnut between Avenue A and C will be closed for reconstruction of the street, but no time-line was given. Mid Kansas Online will have that information posted on our website as it becomes available. Concerns regarding access in the event of a fire or medical emergency were addressed by Fire Chief Jeff Deal.
