KANSAS CITY – If you plan on going to Friday’s Kansas City Royals home opener and haven’t been to the Truman Sports Complex in a while, there are some changes in how you get to the stadiums that you need to know about.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has moved the eastbound I-70 ramp to Kauffman Stadium about a mile to the west, just before you come to the I-435 interchange.

The change is part of the addition of a third lane in both directions on I-70 at I-435, eliminating the Kansas City area’s biggest traffic bottleneck. The eastbound I-70 at Blue Ridge Cutoff exit, which is one of the main entrances to the Royals game, is now accessed from a new collector ramp system on eastbound I-70 that also feeds traffic from I-435 ramps to eastbound I-70 and to the stadium.

These major changes will affect Royals fans heading for Friday afternoon’s home opener against the Cleveland Indians. The ramp entrance from eastbound I-70 to Blue Ridge Cutoff will now begin just beneath the I-435 interchange. It will feed into a collector ramp system that also will carry traffic from southbound and northbound I-435 heading to eastbound I-70 and to Blue Ridge Cutoff.
