Both eastbound and westbound I-70 at Manchester Bridge will be down to one lane late Friday to noon Saturday, June 28-29, for bridge deck repair.
The two left lanes of westbound I-70 will close at Blue Ridge Boulevard beginning 7 p.m. Friday, and the two left lanes of eastbound I-70 will close at Route 40 beginning 8 p.m. Friday, through noon Saturday. Beginning noon Saturday, both eastbound and westbound I-70 will be open to two lanes in each direction. All eastbound and westbound lanes will re-open by noon Sunday, June 30.
Bridge Rehabilitation to Close Northbound I-435 Ramp to Northbound I-35 near Claycomo
Bridge rehabilitation will close the northbound I-435 ramp to northbound I-35 (Exit 52B) beginning 11:55 p.m. Friday, June 28 until 5 a.m. Monday, July 8. A signed detour will be in place.
Traffic on northbound I-435 will be sent to northbound US 69 (exit 52A) to the I-35/US69 and Pleasant Valley Road Interchange to access northbound I-35. Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time when traveling this direction.
This is one of several bridge rehabilitations this construction season to prolong the life of structures in the Claycomo area. All work in the area will be done by November. To see the full list of these bridge projects visit www.modot.org/kansascity/major_projects/NorthlandBridges.htm

Route 92 Bridge over Route 45 to Close for Replacement Work to Begin June 28
Replacement of the Route 92 Bridge over the BNSF Railroad and Route 45, commonly referred to as the Beverly Bridge, begins Friday, June 28. The bridge will close at 8 a.m. through December to allow the Missouri Department of Transportation to safely replace the 70-year-old structure.
Although the bridge will close, Route 92 on either side of the bridge will remain open for customers to access local businesses.
In addition, Route 45 under the Route 92 Bridge will close at 9 p.m. Friday, June 28 until 6 a.m. Saturday, June 29 to allow crews to demolish the bridge. Traffic can bypass this closure using the Route 45 Spur and Route 92.
