The Missouri Department of Transportation will restrict traffic to one lane from midnight through 5 p.m. on Saturday on eastbound Interstate 470 from View High Drive to Route 350 to allow crews to restripe lanes.


In addition, the exit ramp from eastbound I-470 to Route 50 and Pryor Road will be closed. Access to eastbound Route 50 will be Route 350 and Bannister road.


Crews will restripe lanes and add new signs along I-470 between View High Drive and Route 50 to create two exit lanes. Currently, only one exit lane allows traffic to leave I-470 to reach eastbound Route 50 or Pryor Road.


This additional designated lane will ease congestion during the evening rush hour.
