BBQ Fans Headed to American Royal World Series of BBQ Could Encounter Lane Restrictions

Road Traffic ConstructionWork on Stadium Road Bridges and I-70 at Manchester Continues

JACKSON COUNTY – With the American Royal World Series of BBQ kicking off today, MoDOT is reminding those headed to the four day event at Arrowhead Stadium that the extensive bridge rehabilitation project on the Stadium Road Bridges over I-435 and I-70 continues to impact traffic. The construction zone will still be in place during the event.

Construction has restricted lanes on Stadium Road Bridges to one lane each direction and those traveling to the event should plan accordingly. Both bridges are located at Gates 6 and 7 (Bus/RV Exit) near Arrowhead. Motorists traveling to these gates should expect some potential delays. KC Scout message boards will also direct traffic to Blue Ridge Cutoff for gates 2 and 3 for a faster commute. This is a full 24/7 lane closure but all work will be performed during daytime, work hours. All work is weather dependent.

In addition, crews will close the left lane of westbound I-70 between Manchester Trafficway and Route 40 from 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 for deck pour.  Crews will also close the left lane of eastbound I-70 between Route 40 and Manchester Trafficway from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 for deck pour.

This is part of a project to replace the I-70 bridges over Manchester Trafficway, the Blue River and adjacent rail yard. All work is weather dependent.
