CLAY COUNTY – Crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation will make pavement repairs at the intersection of 16th Avenue and Linn Street in North Kansas City from approximately Tuesday, June 6 through Friday, June 9. This work will require the continuous closure of the northbound movement (continuing on Linn Street) and the southbound left turn movement (continuing on 16th Street) of the intersection. Southbound motorists will be able to turn right and head westbound on 16th avenue but will not be able to turn left and head eastbound onto 16th Avenue. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes if necessary. All work is weather permitting.
As a reminder, crews are completing bridge rehabilitation work near the intersection of 16th Avenue and Linn Street. Work is currently taking place over Bedford Avenue and various railroads north of the Missouri River.
Due to this bridge rehabilitation work the following traffic changes are in place through August 2023:
This work requires the following lane and ramp closures on southbound Interstate 29/Interstate 35 at 16th Avenue through August 2023:
- Crews will CLOSE one lane of southbound I-29/I-35 at 16th Avenue through approximately August 2023 for bridge repairs.
- Crews will CLOSE the ramp from 16th Avenue to southbound I-29/I-35 through approximately August 2023 for bridge repairs.
- The signed DETOUR route in place is northbound Linn Street to eastbound Armour Road/Missouri Route 210 to southbound I-29. JUNE 6-9: The northbound Linn Street detour route will be temporarily modified to northbound Iron Street while repairs are made at the intersection of 16th Avenue and Linn Street.
Deterioration of bridge expansion joints has resulted in the need to complete repairs over the summer months. Delaying these repairs would increase the need for emergency lane closures in the future. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes if necessary. All work is weather permitting.
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.
