Motorists are advised to plan ahead, leave early, and consider alternate routes if necessary as there could be delays in the area. All work is weather permitting.
•Beginning at approximately 7 p.m. on Monday, May 1, crews will CLOSE one lane of both northbound and southbound I-29 at 72nd Street until approximately October 2023.
•During overnight hours, motorists can expect various lane and ramp closures in both directions of I-29 at 72nd Street beginning on Monday, May 1, through Wednesday, May 3.

•Beginning at approximately 7 a.m. on Wednesday, May 3, crews will CLOSE 72nd Street between NW Prairie View Rd. and Roanridge Rd. until approximately October 2023. During this time, motorists will need to follow the signed detour or seek alternate routes.
The signed detour route is:

The I-29 twin bridges over 72nd Street carry six lanes of traffic through Kansas City and are nearing the end of their service lives necessitating the replacement. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.
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.
