MoDOT advising drivers who take I-470 during rush hour to find alternative routes as they begin work on 15 bridges

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- Missouri drivers beware-- a major, multiple bridge project is underway and it could impact your commute times.

MoDOT is repairing bridges along I-470 from Blue Ridge Boulevard to the I-70 interchange.

During the repairs, I-470 will remain open but lanes will be closed. That  means there will be delays for drivers during  rush hour periods.

There will also be ramp closures  at I-470 and View High Drive and the I-470 and I-70 interchange.

Some of the bridges being repaired include:

  • Kansas City Southern Railroad Bridge over I-470
  • Blue Ridge Boulevard Bridge
  • James A. Reed Bridge
  • Little Blue River Bridge
  • View High Drive Bridge
  • Cedar Creek Rail Road Bride
  • Bowlin Road Bridge on northbound I-470
  • Lakewood Boulevard Bridge on southbound I-470
  • Little Blue River Bridge on both northbound and southbound lanes
  • U.S. 40 Bridge on both northbound and southbound lanes
  • I-470 Bridge over I-70, both northbound and southbound lanes

The current phase will reduce I-470 down to two lanes from Cedar Creek Bridge to Little Blue River Bridge near View High Drive through mid-November.
