Crews Will CLOSE Eastbound I-70 Ramp to Blue Ridge Cutoff Jan. 29 until Summer 2020

JACKSON COUNTY – MoDOT Kansas City will CLOSE the ramp from eastbound I-70 to eastbound Blue Ridge Cutoff for pavement construction beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at approximately 6 a.m. until summer 2020. This was originally scheduled for Monday, Jan. 27, but has been rescheduled. This ramp closure will have impacts to fans headed to Kauffman Stadium this season. Motorists needing to go this direction are advised to exit eastbound I-70 at U.S. 40 Highway and continue east until intersecting with Blue Ridge Cutoff. All work is weather permitting. 

This is all part of the I-435 and I-70 construction project and it will have significant impacts on traffic for two full construction seasons.
