Both Directions of I-70 Will Be Reduced to ONE LANE at I-435 OVERNIGHT July 14-16

JACKSON COUNTY– The Missouri Department of Transportation will have both eastbound and westbound I-70 reduced to ONE LANE at I-435 OVERNIGHT from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. each evening on Tuesday, July 14, Wednesday, July 15, and Thursday, July 16. This lane reduction is for bridge construction work. Motorists should expect delays in the area. All work is weather permitting.

This is all part of a new interchange design being built at I-435 and I-70. The new design will be a partial turbine configuration. Improvements include full bridge replacements, removal of left exits, improvements to loop ramp configuration, and congestion relief. This project will have significant impacts on traffic for two full construction seasons and is scheduled to be complete by Dec. 2020. For more information about this project, visit our website.

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.

For potential impacts to traffic, please review KC Scout cameras at or consult our real-time traffic partner, WAZE.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. 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.
