I-35 Southbound Closure Continuing to Tuesday

The ramp closures part of a resurfacing project on Interstate 35 have been extended to today.

The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Ideker, Inc. to resurface I-35 between the Clinton/Clay County line and just north of Route 116.

Crews began mainline paving on Monday, which includes the necessary closures of the ramps.

Originally, crews planned to close the southbound ramps for just one day, but the closure has been extended.

Motorists will need to use an alternate route on Tuesday, April 21 for I-35 southbound on and off ramps at Route 116 and, after completion of the southbound ramps, I-35 northbound on and off ramps at Route 116.

The contractor plans to have multiple crews and work zones set up within the project limits, both directions of I-35, through the middle of July.

Crews could be working seven days a week and may work both daytime and nighttime hours.

One lane of I-35 in each direction is expected to remain open throughout the project.

Due to the nature of some of the work, some lane closures may remain up around the clock.

A 12-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of the project.

All work is weather-permitting and schedules are subject to change.
