PLATTE COUNTY, MO. -The Missouri Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing I-435 between NW Cookingham Drive and I-29 beginning Wed., June 22 through the first of December, weather permitting.
This more than $5 million project awarded to Ideker, Inc. will provide a smoother, safer driving surface for more than five miles of I-435. Crews will begin with pavement repair nightly near NW Cookingham and work from east to west. Once these repairs are complete, the moving operation to resurface the driving lanes will begin. This will require both day and night work, requiring lane closures and restrictions. Motorists should expect delays while driving along this section of I-435. No work will be done over Independence Day Weekend from July 1 through July 5, or Labor Day Weekend from September 2 through September 6 to help minimize congestion through the area.
