Plaza Library Driveway to be Closed Starting Tuesday, September 4; Customers to Use Alternative Garage Entrance on 49th Street

The Main Street driveway to the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St., will be closed for up to three weeks starting Tuesday, September 4, 2012, while crews apply a new waterproof surface.

The new surface is intended to protect the parking structure located below the circle drive. The areas being recoated include the entrance lane from Main Street, the circle around the planter, and the crosswalks.

During this time, visitors to the Library and surrounding businesses will be asked to use the 49th Street parking garage entrance. Signs will be posted and additional security staff will be available to help direct traffic for the duration of the project. The garage will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The sidewalks in front of the Library, as well as the neighboring offices and retail areas, will remain open.
