FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 26, 2005
Intersection closing at 13th and Baltimore
Starting this week, the intersection at 13th and Baltimore streets will be closed for approximately three weeks due to utility improvements for the entertainment district under construction.
The 1200 block of Baltimore Street will be open to local traffic only. The following detour route has been established for motorists wishing to go south on Baltimore Street from 13th Street:
Detour north on Baltimore to 11th Street
Detour west on 11th Street to Wyandotte Street
Detour south on Wyandotte Street to 13th Street.
As construction continues on the new downtown entertainment district and the Sprint Center, motorists should be aware that while many streets remain open, there are fewer traffic lanes available, and additional time and consideration should be given to downtown travel routes.
