Traffic Impacts at Old Tiffany Springs Road

PCEDC StaffNews

Be prepared for traffic impacts coming to Platte County in August. KCMO says, traffic on Old Tiffany Springs Road is going to take a definite hit, starting Aug. 5, when bridge demolition and construction gets underway. The Old Tiffany Springs Road Bridge is expected to remain closed for several months.  

Closure 1: Old Tiffany Springs Road

Old Tiffany Springs Road Bridge will be closed starting Monday, Aug. 5, 2019, for demolition and construction of the new bridge. This closure will last a few months while contractors construct the new bridge, which is expected to open for traffic before Thanksgiving 2019. Message boards and detour signage will be posted to notify motorists to use alternate routes: N. Congress Avenue to the west of I-29 and N. Ambassador Drive to the east of I-29.

Closure 2: I-29 at NW Old Tiffany Springs Road

All lanes of I-29 at NW Old Tiffany Springs Road will be closed from 5 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, until 5 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, for bridge demolition. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes:  I-435 from the Kansas side and I-29 and Route 152 on the Missouri side. 

This work has the potential to impact KCI travelers. Motorists are encouraged to make the appropriate adjustments to meet departure and arrival times at KCI Airport. 

This is all part of a KCMO Public Works project to make roadway improvements and build a new bridge at NW Old Tiffany Springs Road over I-29. Project improvements include new sidewalks, a walking trail, streetlights and storm sewer. The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year, weather permitting.
