Portion of West Junge Boulevard in Joplin closed again due to complications from last week’s mineshaft collapse


JOPLIN, Mo. — A portion of West Junge Boulevard in Joplin is closed — again.

It’s a result of last week’s partial mineshaft collapse. It happened on a stretch of road between Black Cat and Central City roads.

Crews, last week, filled the hole with gravel and slabs of concrete — then covered it with more gravel so they could reopen the road. Today, they poured concrete over the area. The road is expected to reopen again sometime tomorrow afternoon.
