Traffic to be reduced to two lanes on I-470 Sept. 5
The Missouri Department of Transportation will reduce Interstate 470 to two lanes in each direction from just east of View High Drive to west of the Cedar Creek Bridge beginning on Sept. 5 through mid-November.
During this time, eastbound traffic will be shifted to the westbound side of I-470. Crews will be repairing the bridge decking on the bridges at Little Blue River, View High Drive and Cedar Creek. Commute times are expected to increase. MoDOT strongly urges motorists to find alternate routes if necessary.
The work is part of the extensive I-470 bridge rehabilitation work ranging from the Three Trails Crossing to I-70. This project will impact traffic along I-470 until November 2018. All work is weather permitting.
