MoDOT: I-470 Sinkhole Fixed- Roadway to Open Tomorrow (Friday)

Not even working 24/7- the contractor hired to repair the westbound I-470 loop into westbound I-435 has finished the job.


The construction camera image shows workers from the Pyramid Contractors of Olathe as well as MoDOT employees cleaning the roadway in anticipation of a POSSIBLE morning drive-time opening of the road.

I-470 was damaged in early July when torrential rains caused a section of the earthen embankment the roadway sat on to collapse- opening a large gap in the roadway.


Pyramid stands to collect nearly $800000 in bonuses for finishing the work prior to the September 15 deadline.
