Week of December 29, 2014 & January 5, 2015 | KC Downtown Streetcar Construction Update

Crossroads Central Business District River Market

Highlights

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE
KC Streetcar Constructors will be closed December 31-January 1. Supervisors will drive the job site daily, and we will pick up as many cones as we can in order to open up on-street parking, while still maintaining a safe job site.  Happy Holidays!
SNOW
In the event of snow, it may be necessary to close some side streets to keep the roads safe for snow plows and the traveling public. Follow us on Twitter @kcstreetcar for the latest street closures and construction updates.
