Transportation Alert!

Northeast News

If your weekend travels involve any travel near the I-435 and Missouri 210 interchange near Worlds of Fun take heed. Re-routes and traffic delays will be part of your day.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will close all northbound and southbound lanes of I-435 at Route 210 beginning at 10 p.m. tonight, Friday, March 2 through 5 a.m. Monday, March 5 for demolition of the now-closed northbound I-435 to westbound Route 210 flyover ramp.

Southbound traffic of I-435 will be completely closed at Route 210 and northbound traffic will be closed at Front St. The southbound on-ramp to I-435 from Route 210 will also be closed during the same time period. Traffic will be detoured to I-35 for both directions. All work is weather dependent.

This is all part of a project to build a new diverging diamond interchange for I-435 and Route 210, which includes replacing the old twin bridges over I-435 and Route 210 and widening I-435 to six lanes.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
