The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will close the entrance to Route AA at Eastbound U.S. 50 Highway from Monday, November 4th through Wednesday, December 4th for new concrete pavement construction.
MoDOT has a signed state detour. Drivers are encouraged to plan and find an alternative route that works best for their needs. All work is weather dependent.
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.
OATS Transit will be available to Grain Valley residents beginning June 1, 2018. The transportation service will offer door to door or curb to curb service for residents 65 years of age or older or ages 18-64 with a disability. It will be available in Grain Valley on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Trips will be limited to the city limits of Grain Valley and Blue Springs. The cost is $1.00 per one way trip. Fare cards may be purchased for $10.00 (10 one-way trips or 5 round trips).
City administration and staff worked with OATS personnel over the last several months to identify the need for this service through surveys and reaching out to community members.
“I am so happy that those in need of transportation will have this available to them at such a minimal cost per trip. City staff worked diligently to make sure this service was brought to Grain Valley,” said Mayor Mike Todd.
To schedule a ride, call 816-380-7433 up to two weeks in advance between the hours of 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.
