(From the City of Joplin)
Several streets east of the intersection of 20th Street and Main Street will be closed due to construction projects in the area. The streets include:
Virginia Avenue from 22n Street to 23rd Street; Pennsylvania Avenue, from 21st Street to 22nd Street; and Kentucky Avenue, from 21st Street to 25th Street.
These streets will be closed starting Saturday, October 29 and will remain closed for the next few weeks, allowing work to be completed for the Ten For Joplin project.
The Tulsa and Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity teams, surrounding businesses and the City of Joplin are partnering on one of the most aggressive rebuilding efforts since last May’s devastating EF-5 tornado. The Ten for Joplin project team plans to build 10 homes during a 16-day period for low-income families in Joplin by Thanksgiving.
Motorists are asked to use caution and may wish to seek an alternate route.
