PITTSBURG, KS – Asphalt replacement work on West 5th Street and West 6th Street between North Georgia Street and North Walnut Street will continue over the next few months. Side streets could also be temporarily closed as the pavement operation moves through the intersections.

Concrete work related to approaches, intersections and handicap ramps on North Broadway from 21st Street to 29th Street will begin on Monday, April 15, 2019.  Short-term closure of side streets will be needed for some of the concrete work. Drivers should look for signage of the closures and seek alternative routes as warranted. This work is being done in preparation for the mill and overlay project.

Motorists should expect possible changes to traffic patterns and traffic delays during construction.  Even though traffic control will be in place to allow traffic to use all the streets in the area of construction, traffic will be slowed due to lane closures. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes when possible, to use extreme caution when traveling in the area of construction, and be aware of workers in the work zone.

The City of Pittsburg appreciates the patience of motorists and residents while this work is being performed.  Please contact the City of Pittsburg Public Works Department at (620) 231-4100 with questions regarding this project.


The mission of the City of Pittsburg is to provide exceptional services, facilities and activities with integrity, professionalism, excellent customer service and a commitment to economic vitality.
