MoDOT Kansas City will be conducting guardrail work along eastbound I-70 overnight beginning on Monday, March 15, until Thursday, March 18.

Eastbound I-70 will be reduced to ONE LANE from approximately Route 7 in Blue Springs to Route H/F in Oak Grove for guardrail work from 8 p.m. each evening until 6 a.m. the following mornings. All work is weather permitting. Please be patient and considerate to your fellow motorists. Use the zipper merge and take turns at merge points.

Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE ZONES. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive. For potential impacts to traffic, please review KC Scout cameras at or consult our real-time traffic partner, WAZE. 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.
