KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Drivers heading east on Truman Road and near Baltimore Avenue will have to find an alternate route for about a month.

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced that beginning on Monday, June 7, at 6:30 a.m., the road will be closed as construction continues on the Baltimore Avenue bridge over Interstate 670.

In May, I-670 between Interstate 35 and Interstate 70 was completely closed for a weekend for the demolition of the bridge.

MODOT didn't give an exact date on when Truman Road would reopen, but said it'd be closed for approximately four weeks.
