Future of I-70 Online Meeting

MoDOT  Kansas City Future I-70 Staying Ahead of the Curve

Why Are Improvements Needed?

I-70 has outlasted its original 20-year design life.  With maintenance, MoDOT has extended the highway life, however most sections of interstate in the Study Area are approximately 40-to 50-years old. These sections will need rebuilding sometime in the future. 

The purpose of the I-70 FTEIS is to determine an improvement strategy that addresses the following:

  • Improve Safety: Reduce crashes and their severity on I-70 and the downtown loop.
  • Reduce Congestion: Remove key bottlenecks; reduce the potential for ramp back-up onto the freeway; and improve travel times.
  • Restore and Maintain Existing Infrastructure: Improve bridge and pavement conditions and implement cost-effective investment strategies.
  • Improve Accessibility: Provide travel options for all residents; increase safe access across I-70 and the downtown loop for non-motorized travel; support local and regional land use plans.
  • Improve Goods Movement: Improve the efficiency of freight movement on I-70 and the downtown loop.
