Due to inclement weather in the forecast for later this week, Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) Kansas City has adjusted its timeline regarding work at the I-435 and I-70 interchange. This work includes various lane closures. All work is weather permitting.
This work includes a traffic switch for northbound I-435. Once this phase of work is completed, northbound traffic will cross over to the southbound lanes with traffic moving in two lanes each direction. This pattern will remain in place until the new northbound lanes and bridges are constructed.
Crews will also have one lane of the ramp from westbound I-70 to northbound I-435 will be closed for retraining wall construction daily beginning at 7:00am until 5:00pm through Friday, January 10th.
Motorists are advised to plan ahead, leave early, or consider alternate routes. This is all part of the I-435 and I-70 construction project and it will have significant impacts on traffic for two full construction seasons.
