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 left lane of southbound I-435 between Route 210 and Front St. from 6:00 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 until 8:00 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 for bridge deck work
Crews will close the ramps from eastbound and westbound Route 210 to southbound I-435 from 6:00 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 until 8:00 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 for bridge deck work.
Eastbound and westbound Route 210 traffic wanting to travel south on I-435 should utilize northbound I-435 to Parvin Rd. and turn around.
Closures in this area this weekend have the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to please 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.
