KANSAS CITY – Missouri Department of Transportation is scheduling multiple lane and ramp closures for Friday evening Oct. 19 through early Sunday morning on Oct. 21 on I-435 between Three Trails Crossing and the 104th Street Bridge. Crews will begin CLOSING lanes of I-435 westbound beginning at 6p.m. on Friday Oct. 19 until only one lane remains open. Crews will also REDUCE I-435 eastbound to two lanes beginning Friday evening. Westbound I-470 will also be REDUCED to one lane coming into the interchange.
Crews will also CLOSE the following access ramps:
- Westbound I-435 to 103rd off-ramp
