JACKSON COUNTY – MoDOT will CLOSE the left lane and shoulder of southbound Interstate 35 from approximately the westbound I-70 off ramp to the 12th Street off ramp beginning at approximately 5 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27, until approximately 4 p.m. This closure is for sign footing construction operations. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and/or consider alternate routes during this time. All work is weather permitting.

For potential impacts to traffic, please review KC Scout cameras at http://www.kcscout.net or consult our real-time traffic partner, WAZE.
