Kansas City, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will close for improvements the rifle range portion of the Lake City Shooting Range near Buckner starting Monday, March 11. All other target ranges at Lake City will remain open for public use including the pistol, trap, skeet, and archery ranges.

This closure will allow for construction work to make improvements to the overhead concrete baffles at the rifle range, said Kellie Bradfield, assistant outdoor education center manager. During construction, visitors with rifles can use the pistol range, although the target distance is limited to 25 yards.

The construction project is scheduled for 45 days. Lake City is scheduled to reopen the rifle range on May 15. However, the range will be reopened earlier if the project is completed ahead of schedule.

MDC also operates the staffed Parma Woods Shooting Range at Parkville in the Kansas City Area. For information about the Lake City Range at 28505 E. Truman Road, visit http://mdc.mo.gov/lakecity. Information about the Parma Woods range is available at http://mdc.mo.gov/parmawoods.
