Traffic Commission Recommends Closure Of Part Of Main Street This Summer

The City Traffic Commission recommended the closure of Main Street in front of the Corn Palace during a renovation project this summer.  Corn Palace Director Mark Schilling says it is a safety issue.  Discussion at Monday night’s meeting focused on the specifications of the project, which have not yet been seen or approved by the city council.  Specs will be presented at a future meeting.

The seven million dollar project will start on May 20th.  If the full council approves the closure, motorists will not be able to drive in front of the Corn Palace.  The front entrance will be closed as well.  Tourists and others will enter the building from the entrance on 6th Avenue.  The lobby area of the Corn Palace would be opened in mid-August, although work will not be completed on the entire structure at that time.
