Lane closures delayed
The schedule for Interstate 470 lane closures has been moved to July 31, when work will begin on shoulder reconstruction in preparation for repairing 11 bridges from Blue Ridge Boulevard to Interstate 70.
The bridge work is expected to start in mid August.
The single lane closures will be 24/7 for a few days at each work location, reducing the number of lanes along I-470. Delays will be encountered and the Missouri Department of Transportation encourages motorists to plan ahead and select alternate routes. All work is weather permitting.
