CONNECTICUT AVE BRIDGE IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC - CELEBRATE WITH JOPLIN NEWS FIRST



#JLNtrafficalert >>>> CONNECTICUT AVE BRIDGE IS OPEN

• Deadline for completion was Nov 1. Thank you MoDOT Southwest Missouri and Joplin City Government KSN 16 KODE 12 #fourstateshomepage

(64804) -- IT’S OPEN NOW!!! Only two lanes and a sidewalk on the West are accessible. The East side won't be connected until the road is widened as part of the project.

"Now that it is open we [First Baptist Church] won't have to drive through the DIAMOND OF DEATH," Kim Conroy tells Joplin News First. She's referring to the South Rangeline traffic diamond. "The women in my class at church talk about it all the time."

We didn't know the next phase in the project so we asked Chris Sloan, Senior Minister at Christ Community United Methodist Church. "A roundabout at 44th and Connecticut."

Thanks to our #JLNfriends Amanda and Martha! You are Joplin News First.
