CLAY COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation is set to begin an extensive resurfacing project in Clay County, which is expected to last at least four months.

Crews will close various lanes of northbound and southbound MO Route 291 between Interstate 435 and north of Kansas St./152 Hwy, beginning Monday, July 6 and continuing until Monday, Nov. 2 for resurfacing work.

Road closures in this area has the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to plan ahead. 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.
