Utility Work Will Impact Traffic Next Week

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Motorists who use the intersection of Gene Field and the Belt Highway may want to seek a different route next week. Beginning Monday, June 5, utility work will narrow northbound U.S. Route 169 (Belt Highway). Gene Field Road will close on the east side of that intersection the following day.

Workers from Missouri Gas Energy will close the outside northbound lane of the Belt Highway around the Gene Field intersection beginning at approximately 9 a.m. Monday, June 5. The lane will remain closed through Thursday, June 8, at approximately 8 p.m.

On Tuesday, June 6, at approximately 9 a.m. Gene Field Road will be closed on the east side of the intersection with the Belt Highway. It will remain closed through Thursday, June 8, at approximately 8 p.m. as well.

During the closure, all business entrances on Gene Field Road will be accessible. Traffic will be restricted from crossing the Belt Highway at Gene Field. Motorists will experience delays and will not be able to turn east onto Gene Field Road from the Belt Highway or access the Belt Highway from westbound Gene Field Road.

All work is weather permitting and could be rescheduled. MoDOT encourages all travelers to slow down, especially in work zones, as there will be large equipment and workers near the driving lanes. As always, please buckle up, eliminate distractions, pay attention and drive safely so everyone is able to Arrive Alive.
