JACKSON COUNTY –MoDOT Kansas City has rescheduled the dates and adjusted its plans regarding overnight pavement repairs that will require the closure of the northbound I-35 ramp to eastbound I-70. Work will now be beginning 9 p.m. on Friday, June 18, until approximately 6 a.m. the following morning.
Additionally, all traffic along northbound I-35 will be shifted to the right lanes at 20th St. and ultimately onto I-670 and will close northbound I-35 at I-670 as well. The right lane of northbound I-35 will be closed just before 12th St. forcing all traffic coming from westbound I-670 onto westbound I-70 via the Lewis and Clark Viaduct. The ramp from 12th St. northbound to I-35 will also be closed during this time.
Motorists must find alternate routes during this time. All work is weather permitting.
Please be patient and considerate to your fellow motorists. Use the zipper merge and take turns at merge points. Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE ZONES. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive. For potential impacts to traffic, please review KC Scout cameras at http://www.kcscout.net or consult our real-time traffic partner, WAZE.
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.
