JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic change as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close the two left lanes of northbound I-435 between Route 210 and Front St. from 6am until 6pm, Saturday, Nov. 20 for pavement marking work
Just down stream from this project, crews with the NE 53rd Terrace Bridge replacement project will also close two lanes of northbound and southbound I-435 at NE 53rd Terrace for pavement marking work. The combination of these two projects along the I-435 corridor will have 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.
