Main Street Open to Traffic

Shawnee, Oklahoma, February 14, 2023 – The segment of Main Street between Broadway Avenue and Beard Street is now open to street traffic. The sidewalk and adjacent parking on the south side of the roadway remain blocked.

Due to the collapse of 1 W. and 7 W. Main Street, and the need to keep the public safe, the City of Shawnee temporarily closed Main Street from Broadway Avenue to Beard Street to allow structural engineers to evaluate the affected buildings. Necessary future demolition requires the continued blockage of the affected buildings, parking, and sidewalks on the south side of Main Street for an undetermined amount of time.

The City of Shawnee will provide more information on the demolition process, as it becomes available.
