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 Monday, Feb. 1, the work will include:
