MoDOT to CLOSE I-70 at Oak Grove Next Weekend for Bridge Demolition
Interstate traffic will be diverted over existing ramps

OAK GROVE – The Missouri Department of Transportation continues work on the bridge improvements in Oak Grove and will CLOSE I-70 at the interchange on Friday, June 1 at 10 p.m. until Monday, June 4 at 6 a.m. for partial bridge demolition.  Eastbound and westbound I-70 will be diverted onto and over the existing ramps.  There will be NO access to or from I-70 and F/H.  Motorists who need to access Oak Grove or I-70 must use Bates City-Exit 31 or Grain Valley-Exit 24. 

This closure is part of an extensive bridge project to convert the traditional diamond interchange to a diverging diamond interchange. The new DDI will increase left-turn capacity, improve traffic operation and reduce the number of crashes on Route F. In addition to the improvements to the bridge and traffic, the ramps onto I-70 will be lengthened to allow improved merging onto the interstate. Learn more about the project here: http://bit.ly/2rBoFNc 

The Missouri Department of Transportation urges all motorists to always wear safety belts, follow posted speed limits and be alert for slowed traffic, narrowed lanes or a reduced number of lanes during construction and maintenance work. And remember, every work zone is a NO PHONE ZONE.
