Starting Monday, June 15, there will be a closure along 6th Street between Main Street and Virginia Avenue. This portion of the road is being closed for construction work being completed to the Frisco Apartment building located at 601 South Main Street.
The ramp along 6th Street that drivers use to reach the east side parking lot will also be closed.
This closure will allow a crane to be utilized in the re-roofing project of the Frisco Apartments. This closure is anticipated to remain for approximately two weeks.
Sidewalks in this area will also be closed for safety reasons. Pedestrians will need to use either 5th Street or 7th Street to travel between Virginia and Main Streets.
Drivers should use extreme caution in the work area. The City appreciates your patience as this construction work is completed on one of Joplin’s historical buildings.
