The closure will start after morning rush hour, said Kirsten Munck, assistant to the resident engineer at the Missouri Department of Transportation. Munck said the detour will have drivers exit I-70 Drive Southwest at Stadium Boulevard and use Bernadette Drive until it intersects with Knipp Street.

The construction will add two lanes to Stadium Boulevard and rebuild part of I-70 Drive Southwest, according to a news release from MoDOT. Drivers should anticipate heavy traffic and plan accordingly when traveling in the area.
