From the City of Topeka:
TOPEKA, Kan.– City of Topeka workers are closing SW 21st Street between Topeka Boulevard and Washburn Avenue immediately due to subgrade damage caused by two water main breaks over the weekend. Those breaks were between Clay and Buchanan streets.
The detour will be from Washburn to 17th Street, to Topeka Boulevard, and back to 21st. No through traffic will be allowed on 21st Street. Motorists who normally use that route are encouraged to follow the detour and avoid driving through neighborhoods. Workers are on-site evaluating the situation.
Access to local businesses on 21st Street will be maintained from either direction
