TRAFFIC ALERT: Southbound Route 71/I-35 Ramp Closure Extended

KANSAS CITY – The ramp from southbound Route 71/I-35 to westbound I-670 remains closed as work on the new Grand Ave. Bridge over I-670 continues.  The ramp is expected to reopen by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, weather dependent. The new Grand Avenue Bridge is on schedule to open to traffic no later than December 1.

Southbound traffic needing to access westbound I-670 can use the north side of the downtown loop.

In addition, crews will close the right lane of westbound I-670 at Grand Ave. from 6 to 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, and again from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 7 for additional bridgework. All work is weather dependent.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention as they drive past work zones. Not all work zones look alike. We remind motorists that work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
