KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Construction crews will reduce eastbound Interstate 70 by one lane Tuesday and Wednesday during the day as crews complete bridge work near the Truman Sports Complex.

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced Monday that it will close the left lane of eastbound I-70 at I-435 for bridge construction work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both days.

Crews also will close the ramp from eastbound I-70 to southbound I-435 beginning at 8 p.m. Monday until 5 a.m. Tuesday. The ramp also will be closed overnight from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday into Wednesday for electrical and paving re-striping work.

The closures are expected to have a significant impact on traffic and motorists are advised to plan ahead or find an alternate route.

All work is weather permitting.
