KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Downtown drivers may want a detour plan this weekend. Construction will impact the northside of the downtown loop.

Crews will close the eastbound lanes of Interstate 670 from Wyoming Street to Oak Street. That includes the southbound Interstate 35 exit ramp to eastbound I-670. The closure begins at 7 a.m. Saturday morning and won’t reopen until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

Work will include improving signage and pavement in the area in preparation for upcoming bridge repair work on the Lewis & Clark Viaduct.

There are ways to get around the construction.

Crews plan to detour traffic from eastbound I-670 onto I-35. They recommend staying on the interstate until drivers reach the Broadway Blvd./27th Street exit. You’ll be able to turnaround and travel northbound on I-35 to access eastbound I-670.
