Portion of I-470 Will Be Reduced to ONE LANE Beginning July 27
JACKSON COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation will be reducing Interstate 470 to ONE LANE in both directions from 39th Street to the Little Blue River just south of Highway 40 beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 27, until approximately 5 a.m. on Monday, July 30. This left lane closure is for pavement work in preparation of extensive bridge repairs at the I-470/Route 291 and I-70 Interchange, Highway 40, and Little Blue River tentatively scheduled to begin in August 2018. This is all a part of the extensive I-470 bridge rehabilitation project that will repair 15 bridges along the I-470 corridor through approximately November 2018.
These lane reductions will have major impacts to traffic. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and to find an alternate route if necessary. Please be patient and considerate to your fellow motorists. Use the zipper merge and take turns at the merge points.
