I-29/35 To Close Saturday for Sign Removal.

Officials with KC ICON, indicate that both directions of I-29/35 near the Front Street interchange will close this Saturday, Oct. 25, at 10 a.m. so crews can remove an overhead sign truss that spans the northbound and southbound lanes.

Single right lane closures will be in place in both directions between Front St. and The Paseo starting at 7 a.m. so crews can mobilize equipment and start the removal process before stopping traffic completely at 10 a.m. The northbound lanes will be closed for about 20 minutes to stage a large crane and flatbed truck for removing the sign. The southbound lanes will be closed for about 10 minutes while the sign is being lifted onto the truck.

To avoid delays, motorists are encouraged to use either the Heart of America or Broadway bridges Saturday morning.
