JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic changes as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close the right southbound lane of I-435 between Front St. and Route 210 from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17 for bridge deck repair work
Crews will close the eastbound and westbound Route 210 on-ramps to I-435 from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17 for bridge deck repair work
Eastbound and westbound Route 210 traffic wanting to access Southbound I-435 should take NB I-435 to the Parvin Road interchange and turn around onto Southbound I-435.
In addition, Route 210 traffic wanting to access southbound Route 210 will need to detour to north on I-435 to the Parvin Road interchange to turn around and access Southbound I-435.
*Note: Crews typically work this area from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Road closures in this area has the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to plan ahead.
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.
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.
