MoDOT announces lane closures for I-435 as bridge rehabilitation work continues over Raytown Road

Date:

Kansas City, Missouri – Crews are continuing their work on the bridge rehabilitation of the twin bridges on I-435 over Raytown Road. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has implemented traffic configurations to facilitate the construction while maintaining traffic flow.

Current Traffic Configurations

Northbound I-435 (NB I-435):

  • There is a two-lane closure before Raytown Road, which will continue through mid-August 2024.

Southbound I-435 (SB I-435):

  • A single lane closure over Raytown Road will persist through December 2024.

Motorists heading to the stadiums in the area are advised to plan ahead, leave early, and be extra vigilant due to the ongoing construction. Access to the stadiums from NB I-435 may be impacted. MoDOT will provide additional updates and reminders on their social media channels and via email alerts through the MoDOT E-Update system throughout the construction period.

Specifics for Northbound I-435 and Raytown Road/Stadium Dr.

  • The exit ramp from NB I-435 to Raytown Road/Stadium Drive will remain open.
  • Two lanes will remain open at all times.
  • I-435 traffic will be diverted onto the Raytown Road/Stadium Drive exit ramp and then back onto I-435 via a temporary roadway to ensure that two lanes remain open at all times on NB I-435.
  • Crews aim to complete the NB I-435 construction ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs’ first preseason game.

Specifics for Southbound I-435 and Raytown Road/Stadium Dr.

  • Two lanes will remain open at all times.
  • All three lanes will be open before the SB I-435 and Raytown Road/Stadium Drive entrance ramp.
  • SB I-435 construction will continue through December 2024.

In the upcoming months, motorists may experience traffic impacts on SB I-435 near the I-70 interchange and the NB I-435 traffic just north of Sni-A-Bar Road as crews work on the bridge rehabilitation. All construction work is weather permitting.

Safety Reminders

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay close attention while driving through work zones. Work zones can vary, including moving operations such as striping, patching, or mowing, as well as short-term lane closures for quick repairs or debris removal from the roadway.
