Lot and Alley Closed Due to Public Safety Concerns

The City of Osawatomie has closed a public parking lot and expanded the closure of the alleyway between Parker Ave and Main Street in the 500 block.

Due to the unexpected partial collapse of a building’s exterior wall facing the alley, a portion of the alley AND the entire public parking lot north of the 500 block of Main Street have been blocked off in the interest of public safety. The closures are indicated by yellow highlight below.

Residents visiting the post office are advised to use the Parker Avenue parking stalls until the lot is reopened. The alley has been partially closed for a few weeks now, but the area of closure has expanded. There will be no thru-access via the parking lot.

Staff is on-site and working with our team of engineers and contractors to determine the scope of work and damage. Please avoid the area.
