Construction Update: Road Closures


22nd Street closures to impact access to Adele Hall Campus

Employees, patient families should plan alternate routes

As a part of the expansion of the Health Sciences District Campus (Children’s Mercy is part of the District), 22nd Street will be reduced to one lane and/or completely closed between Campbell and Charlotte streets beginning Sept. 30 lasting possibly until February 2020.

Beginning Sept. 30, construction requiring lane closures on 22nd Street between Campbell and Charlotte streets will be narrowed to a single lane between Sept. 30 and Oct. 4. (These dates are tentative; if there are changes, updates will be communicated). Please consider using an alternate route during this time.

In addition, all traffic lanes both east and west are scheduled to be closed between Oct. 14-27. Those who normally take the 22nd Street exit off Highway 71 to reach Charlotte will have to use another route.
