Blocked access — again!

Barricades went up on Wednesday blocking access to westbound I-70 off of
Independence Avenue in Columbus Park. Missouri Department of Transportation officials estimate the ramp to be closed through June of this year.
The Northeast News has also just received notice that the viaducts over the railroad tracks at the old Sheffield Steel plant will be undergoing maintenance beginning Tuesday, May 26. Once again, Northeast’s access to other areas of the city is stymied.
Throw in the night-time construction choking the HOA (Heart of America) Bridge down to one lane northbound, and Northeast has once again, been virtually cut off from the rest of the outside world.
It'll make summer commuting interesting, that's for sure.
