Beginning Monday, the Northwest Parkway and Karnes Road Improvements Project will begin.
According to a press release from the City of St. Joseph, this infrastructure project is funded through the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) half-cent sales tax in the amount of $2.6 million dollars. The project will realign Karnes Road through Northwest Parkway to eliminate Karnes intersecting at St. Joseph Avenue.
A detour will be in place that can be traveled in either direction on Lovers Lane at Gene Field to Miller Road traveling north to Cook Road. Cook Road would be followed west to St. Joseph Avenue.
It is anticipated that the closure and detour will last until fall 2018.
