Starting Monday, May 21, Murphy Boulevard will be closed from 15th to 20th Street for crews to work on realignment of the road as well as completion of sidewalks in the realignment portion. Message boards will be placed in the area to notify motorists of this upcoming closure.
This project is one of several in the area focused on the recovery work funded by HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program. With this grant funding, HUD also issues deadlines for work to be completed. Joplin’s recovery work is due to be completed by the latter part of 2019.
D&E Plumbing is the contractor for this job. It should be completed by mid to late summer of this year. Detours will be available, but motorists are encouraged to use caution during travel in the area.
