I-29 ramp near KCI to be closed for repairs

One of the Kansas City area’s first stimulus projects is going to inconvenience drivers overnight tonight.

Highway crews will close the ramp from southbound I-29 to Mexico City Avenue for pavement repairs. This is the ramp that gets many southbound drivers to the economy lots at Kansas City International Airport. The closure will run from 9 tonight until 5 a.m.

This closure is part of an $11.7 million project that will resurface parts of I-29 and improve the shoulders at various locations from Missouri 273 to Vivion Road.
