CASS COUNTY – Crews working on the bridge replacement and intersection improvement project on MO-7 South will extend the following lane and ramp closures:

  • Various daily closures will take place for sign construction on both SB and NB I-49 from Commercial Street to just south of MO-7. Lane closures are anticipated to take place from Thursday, Jan. 25 through Friday, Feb. 9. (Extended due to weather from Jan. 8-19.)

In addition, the following closures will be in place through March 31 (extended from Jan. 31 due to weather):

  • The ramp from MO-7 to southbound I-49 will be closed.

*Detour information: Traffic on NB MO-7 should follow the signed detour and take NB I-49 to Commercial Street, exit and cross the bridge and take the ramp to SB I-49. Traffic on 275th Street/Outer Road should follow the signed detour and take the outer road south to 307th Street.

  •  The ramp from NB I-49 to MO-7 will be closed.

*Detour information: Traffic on NB I-49 should follow the signed detour and take NB I-49 to Commercial Street, exit and cross the bridge and take SB I-49 back to MO-7.

  •  The WB lane of 275th Street (NB MO-7) will be closed across the bridge

*Detour information: Traffic wanting to continue west on 275th Street (NB MO-7) or wanting to access SB I-49 should follow the signed detour and take NB I-49 to Commercial Street, exit and cross the bridge and take SB I-49 back to MO-7.

This work is part of a larger project to complete two bridge replacements and make intersection improvements to MO-7 South (275th street) over I-49.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
