Road Closures

Road Closure This is a list of published Road Closures within the City of Pineville.  We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please plan an alternate route if necessary.
The 3rd and final phase of the replacement/reconstruction of the Military Highway Overpass (U.S. Highway 165-B) to an "At-Grade Crossing" is beginning April 19, 2021. As we explained last week, the first phase involved the removal of the old bridge and "clearing and grubbing" of Military and Jefferson Highways. Phase 2 was the relocation of all utilities along that same stretch, which was completed April 5th.
Now the Road Contractor needs to close a section of Military Hwy. and Jefferson Hwy. to realign and straighten out Jefferson where it will intersect the new section of Military Highway. This CLOSURE of Jefferson Highway will remain in effect until the "At-Grade Crossing" is complete in late August/early September. The closure will detour thru traffic onto Lawrence Blvd. and allow ONLY local traffic to enter the closed section of the roadway.

Military Highway Closure


Kansas City Southern Railroad has CLOSED the Creed Street "at-grade" crossing effective immediately. The City of Pineville was not notified in advance, so we apologize for the short notice. Whether you access Creed Street from Griffith Street or from O'Neal Street - you will no longer be able to drive from one end to the other because of this permanent closing, which is apart of the pending improvements to the US 165B/Military Highway "at-grade" crossing project.
