CPD plans road closure on Old Route K for home football games
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Police Department released a plan Monday detailing a road closure for Old Route K during Mizzou home football games.
Police said they will be closing a portion of Old Route K at the West Outer Road of Providence during all home games. The closure will be from just south of the bridge past the MU tennis courts to the north entrance of Providence Hill Apartments.
They plan to close the road three hours before each home game until the end of the game.
Police said the closure is necessary to prevent illegal parking on a narrow two-lane road, which causes safety concerns for pedestrians.
The department said the illegal parking also makes it difficult for emergency vehicles to get through the area.
