Due to the current structural conditions, the 6th Street concrete ramp is being closed until further notice. The ramp leads from 6th and Main Street to the parking deck located at 6th Street and Virginia Avenue. Barricades and signs have been placed to close the ramp to traffic. The parking area can still be accessed from the entrance located along Virginia Avenue.
The City of Joplin recently advertised a request for qualifications to select a consultant for the rehabilitation of the parking garage. City staff plan to have a consultant selected and under contract in the near future for the structural analysis and design of the rehabilitation. The selected consultant will also look at the ramp as part of their contract.
Drivers are reminded to use caution while traveling near this area and to yield to barricades marking the closure. The City appreciates your patience and cooperation.
