A portion of Azalea Terrace will be closed this week while crews work to complete safety improvements associated with the Niokaska Creek Trail construction project.

Azalea will be closed between Country Way and Magnolia Drive from Monday, Sept. 14 through Friday, Sept. 18, according to a news release.

Drivers should consider using Old Wire Road or Crossover Road to bypass the work zone. Detour signs will be posted, according to the release. Pedestrians and bicyclists will still have access to the area, but should use caution.

Crews are set to install a raised crosswalk as part of the final step to finish of the 3-mile-long trail connection from Mission Boulevard to Mud Creek Trail at Old Missouri Road. Features of the trail include a sidewalk and two-way protected bike lane along Old Wire Road, bicycle-specific signals at Township Street, updated trails within Gulley Park, and lighting.
