Press release from the City:
Hotel construction, bike race close lanes, streets
Most restrictions Saturday only, another will be about a year
Construction on the Courtyard by Marriott hotel at Harrison Square and the Parkview Cycling Festival at Parkview Field will result in some additional lane and road closures Saturday and a new lane closure for the duration of the hotel’s construction.
On Saturday, there will be no traffic on Harrison between Jefferson Boulevard and Douglas Street, but the two west lanes will be open for cyclists participating in the race. Weather permitting Monday, Shiel Sexton, the hotel’s general contractor, will move concrete barricades to the center of Harrison Street, which will remain there for about year. Once the barricades are in place, one lane for southbound traffic will be open on this section of Harrison.
For race day, the concrete barricades on the two southern lanes of Jefferson between Ewing Street and Douglas will be removed from the street, but it will remain closed to traffic to accommodate the bike race. The Jefferson barricades will be placed on the street again by Monday morning. These lane restrictions, already in place, will also continue during construction.
Other all-day road closures for Saturday’s bike race will be:
- Ewing from Baker Street to Jefferson
- Webster Street from Douglas to Brackenridge Street
- Douglas from Harrison to Webster
- Brackenridge from Calhoun to Ewing.
