Traffic Alert: Crews to close section of I-35 for expansion joint repair

CLAY COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the left lane of southbound I-35 over Bedford Ave. from 8:30am until 3:00pm, Monday, January 24 for expansion joint repair work.


The closure will take place just before the conclusion of morning rush and could potentially have an impact on traffic. Please plan ahead. All work is weather dependent.


This work was originally scheduled for Thursday, January 13, but was canceled due to resources being dispatched to the I-70 fire near 18th St.


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.
