Limited Access to Kentwood Branch

UPDATE (1:30 PM): The gas line has been repaired and patrons can once again access the Kentwood branch from 52nd St. and Breton.

Thanks for your patience!

Due to a construction crew hitting a gas line, access to the Kentwood branch may currently be limited.

  • Breton is closed south of 44th St. due to construction, so there is no access from north of the branch.
  • The intersection of 52nd St. and Breton is blocked by fire trucks, so there is no access from south of the branch.
  • The fire department is temporarily allowing access via Walma, but only until they reopen 52nd and Breton.

Some of the city buildings have been evacuated, but the library is still open.
