I-70 to CLOSE on East Side of Kansas City's Downtown Loop July 10-13

JACKSON COUNTY– The Missouri Department of Transportation will CLOSE both directions of I-70 on the east side of Kansas City’s downtown loop beginning on Friday, July 10 at 7:30 p.m. until approximately 6 a.m. on Monday, July 13. The closure will impact both eastbound and westbound traffic from approximately Admiral Blvd. to Paseo Blvd. and close all ramps in between. Motorists must find alternate routes during this time. All work is weather permitting.

IMPORTANT: This closure will impact drivers using the detour currently in place for KDOT’s Lewis and Clark Bridge replacement project. Motorists traveling this direction on I-35 south should use the northern portion of the downtown loop. Travelers headed north on U.S. 71 should follow westbound I-670. Westbound I-70 travelers will also follow westbound I-670.

This closure is part of a pavement rehabilitation project along both directions of I-70 in downtown Kansas City from approximately State Line to the Manchester Trafficway scheduled to be completed by mid-October 2020.

Please be patient and considerate to your fellow motorists. Use the zipper merge and take turns at merge points.  Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE ZONES. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive.
