Starting next Monday, you'll will need to use an alternate route if you travel St. Louis Avenue between 8th and Campbell Parkway in Joplin. City Engineer Dan Johnson tells News Talk they'll actually be completing two road projects at once.
"The first project included the replacement of an existing corrugated metal culvert that drains underneath the street. The second project includes smoothing out the railroad crossing."
The roadwork is expected to be completed by June 20th. Johnson suggests using Connecticut to Illinois to 7th Street as a detour.
