Second street Wichita traffic closure to begin Monday

May 09, 2019 - 9:45 am

Wichita's Second Street, west of Washington, will close to through traffic for five days, beginning May 13.  During the closure, through traffic will be detoured using Washington, Douglas, and St. Francis streets.  Local traffic on Second Street will be open to Mead Street.

The closure, for installation of a storm sewer drainage structure, is part of a project to reconstruct Second Street from Washington to Santa Fe.  The project also includes pedestrian safety and aesthetic enhancements, drainage improvements, and water main replacement.

Electronic message signs will be posted on Second Street to provide advance warning of the closure.

The $1.9 million project is funded by Government Obligation bonds.  The estimated project completion is summer 2019.
