Planned Ramp Closure Could Snarl Northland Commute
Northlanders who use the southbound Interstate 35 to get onto northbound I-29 should expect delays this weekend when the Missouri Department of Transportation closes the ramp for repairs.
The ramp from southbound I-35/I-29 to Parvin Road will also close, as well one lane of northbound I-29 at Davidson Road to accommodate bridge repairs.
"We'll have a signed detour in place," says MoDOT resident engineer Zach Walker, "which will be southbound I-35 to Levee Road and then back up to northbound 35."
Walker says drivers should allow for extra time and consider using other routes, such as Missouri 152, I-435, Missouri 210 or U.S 169.
The ramp is scheduled to reopen Sept. 18.
