Alternate Routes to Kansas from Lee's Summit due to Sinkhole

Several alternate routes are available for motorists to enter Kansas from Westbound I-470 Highway, which was recently closed due to a sinkhole. Typically, motorists would enter Kansas from I-470 via I-435 West. This portion of roadway has been closed by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) until further notice.
Alternate routes include the following:
 

Westbound I-470 Highway
Exit 7B to Raytown/350 Highway
Exit at 63rd Street and turn Left
Left onto I-435 South
________________________________
Westbound I-470 Highway
Exit US-71 North
Exit at 87th Street.
Get onto US-71 Highway Southbound
Exit on I-435 Southbound into Kansas
_________________________________
I-70 Westbound towards Downtown KCMO
I-435 or I-35 South into Kansas
_________________________________
Westbound Colbern Road becomes Bannister Road
Entering Kansas, Bannister Road becomes 95th Street

Due to an influx of traffic onto roads less-traveled during rush hours, be prepared for major delays and the potential for motor vehicle crashes due to large volumes of traffic. The Lee's Summit Police Department (LSPD) expects traffic back-ups within its City Limits, including areas such as the I-470 / 50 Highway interchange, Colbern and Douglas Roads, and M-150 Highway at West City Limits. LSPD has scheduled additional Traffic Officers to work during Monday morning rush hour in an attempt to help curb problem areas and keep traffic moving.
