The Missouri Department of Transportation is postponing its planned closure of 50 Highway at Interstate 470. The closure was supposed to take place Aug. 2-5, but they have delayed it until Aug. 9-12.
MoDOT crews are working on I-470 where it intersects 50 Highway, but because of falling debris, they must close 50 Hwy during the work. Lanes of I-470 will be open, but drivers should plan for delays there as well.
Signs will direct drivers to various detours depending on their direction of travel. MoDOT requests drivers avoid the area if possible to decrease traffic volume in areas already expecting delays.
Lee's Summit Police will be in the area to help monitor traffic flow.
