Open Streets KC is a temporary program that will last through the KCMO state of emergency order. We will continue to keep these efforts up over the coming weeks and evaluate on a case by case basis as KCMO slowly reopenss. These efforts will remain in alignment with KCMO's state of emergency declaration as that changes. 

What does Open Streets KC do?

  1. Neighborhood Open Streets Permit: allows block-level closures on neighborhood streets. Similar to the Block Party permit, but withoutopen streets photo 3 the party, this permit is streamlined to be easy and accessible for neighborhoods or residents to apply at no cost and without signature requirements.

  2. Automatic pedestrian crossings at over 100 intersections means the pedestrian signal turns on automatically without having to push the pedestrian button. View the list of locations.
  3. “Local Traffic Only” Road Closures: allows more space to safely walk, run, and bike while maintaining social distance.

The following road closures will be deployed with existing, internal resources starting April 23, 2020, still allowing access to local traffic and emergency vehicles:
