Maintenance work along the length of Interstate 470 has been delayed.

The Missouri Department of Transportation now says it will start Aug. 7 and be wrapped up by the end of the month.

Lanes will be closed for shoulder reconstruction between Interstate 70 and Blue Ridge Boulevard. Lanes will be closed one at a time for several days each.

This work is in advance of rehabilitation work on 11 bridges on I-470, including those over I-70, U.S. 40 and the Little Blue River.

MoDOT reminds drivers to slow down, pay close attention and be extra caution in work zones.
