JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic changes as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close the ramp from Route 210 to southbound I-435 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily, beginning Monday, Jan. 25 and continue through Friday, Jan. 29 for bridge work
Crews will close two lanes of southbound I-435 between Route 210 and Front St. from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily, beginning Monday, Jan. 25 and continue through Friday, Jan. 29 for bridge work
 
Closures in this area have the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to please plan ahead.
 
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.     
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.

MoDOT to add J-turns on Route M in Jefferson County
Visitor (not verified)
Thu, 01/21/2021 – 15:20

JEFFERSON COUNTY- The Missouri Department of Transportation will be adding J-turns at St. Luke’s Church Road and Moss Hollow Road on Route M in Jefferson County.
Construction for the project is set to begin this summer and is expected to be completed by Summer 2022. Anticipated impacts have not been finalized for construction details. MoDOT will work with business owners and residents to ensure access is available during construction.
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and reduce crashes by lower the number of conflict points by adding J-turns. A J-turn is a specialized intersection where, rather than crossing traffic, motorists turn right, merge into the left lane and then make a U-turn at a designated point. J-turns have been proven to greatly reduce right-angle crashes, which are most responsible for fatalities and serious injuries at intersections. 
This project cost approximately $1 million.
For additional information about the Route M project, please contact Franklin/Jefferson County Project Manager, Shirley Norris at (314) 314-565-5648 or via email at Shirley.Norris@modot.mo.gov.

MoDOT Accepts Public Input on Route 19 Current River, Spring Valley Bridges

SIKESTON—As part of an Environmental Assessment, the Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public meeting to discuss a proposed project to improve the Route 19 Round Spring Bridges over the Current River and Spring Valley in Shannon County.

The virtual public meeting will be held Thursday, Feb. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m., with formal presentations beginning at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. The same presentation will be delivered at both 5 and 6 p.m. to provide attendees with multiple opportunities to join the discussion. Throughout the online meeting, there will be breaks for attendees to ask questions or share comments. Attendees can join the virtual public meeting on Feb. 4 by visiting www.RT19VPM.com.

The goals of the project are to improve the condition and functionality of these aging structures as well as maintain local and regional connectivity. Although funding is not yet secured for the project, MoDOT is exploring alternatives for replacing or rehabilitating each structure through the study.

The Environmental Assessment will include a detailed overview of alternatives for each structure and will ultimately result in a recommendation for a preferred alternative at each bridge location.

Properties eligible for protection under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act (publicly owned parks, recreation areas, wildlife/waterfowl refuges and historic sites in public or private ownership) (Section 4(f) properties) are found within the project study area. The public is invited to comment on potential uses of these properties and ways to avoid, minimize or mitigate uses. Additional information on these properties and uses will be made available in a future public meeting.

The public is invited to offer comments or concerns about properties listed on or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (historic properties) found within the project area and potential effects on them. Known historic properties include the Current River Bridge, the Spring Valley Bridge and the Three Bridges Historic District.

Interested persons may review the project in more detail and share their thoughts at https://www.modot.org/roundspringbridges. Individuals interested in attending the virtual public meeting may visit www.RT19VPM.com to join on Feb. 4. The link to access the virtual public meeting is also available on the project website at https://www.modot.org/roundspringbridges.

Comments will be accepted through Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021.

For more information or to request a hard copy of the meeting materials, please contact MoDOT Project Manager Pete Berry at (417) 469-6242 or Consultant Project Manager David Kocour at (816) 256-8584.

JACKSON COUNTY– MoDOT Kansas City will be making U.S. 24 route marking designation changes along both I-435 and I-70.  Crews are working to remove the U.S. 24 designation from Independence Ave. west of I-435.  Beginning at I-435, U.S. 24 will soon be routed along I-435 and I-70 into downtown Kansas City.  East of I-435, the U.S. 24 designation will remain unchanged.  This work will require various overnight lane closures. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and find alternate routes if necessary. All work is weather permitting.
This project includes route marking designation changes on I-435 from U.S. 24 to I-70, on I-70 from I-435 to U.S. 24. Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 19, the work will include:
Westbound I-70 will be reduced to ONE LANE from Blue Ridge Cutoff to I-435 for overhead sign truss work Tuesday, Jan. 19, from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following morning.

JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – Due to inclement weather, the Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic changes as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close the ramp from Route 210 to southbound I-435 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily, Monday, Jan. 18 through Friday, Jan. 22 for bridge work
Crews will close two lanes of southbound I-435 between Route 210 and Front St. from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily, Monday, Jan. 18 through Friday, Jan. 22 for bridge work
 
*Note: Originally, this work was scheduled for Friday, Jan. 15.
 
Closures in this area have the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to please plan ahead.
 
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.     
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.
