Interstate 70 Still Closed East and Westbound West of I-435 in Kansas City MO
Workers are still cleaning up the mess left behind when a tanker truck crashed and caught fire before dawn Friday morning.
The incident happened on westbound I-70 just west of I-435.
I-70 remains closed Friday afternoon- and from these KC Scout traffic cam images- looks like the freeway will remain closed through at least Friday night.
Westbound I-70 is being diverted north on northbound I-435 and eastbound I-70- a parking lot- is closed at Van Brunt.
I-435 is open except the westbound I-70 on-ramps.
Alternate routes are U.S. 40- 23rd Street- Truman Road and Winner Road/Independence Avenue.
