MoDOT Kansas City will begin construction work at the Interstate 435 and Interstate 70 interchange beginning on Sunday, March 10. This work includes the CLOSURE of several ramps within the interchange and will have significant impacts on traffic for two full construction seasons. This project will replace the bridges within the interchange and the new configuration will be a partial turbine design. This provides the opportunity to make additional safety improvements that include the new bridges, removal of left exits, improvements to the loop ramp configuration, and congestion relief. For more information about this project, visit our website. All work is weather permitting.
