Blue Ridge Cutoff Closing at I-70 This Weekend

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MODoT) will  begin tearing out the Blue Ridge Cutoff bridge over I-70 this weekend (Jan. 15) in order to replace it.

This will close a busy north-south route that runs east of and parallel to I-435 between U.S. 40 and Raytown Road.

Motorists can detour using Manchester Trafficway to the west- or narrow- dangerous Pittman Road to the east to get around the closed roadway.

Blue Ridge Cutoff is slated to re-open with a new I-70 overpass in time for baseball season in late March 2011.
