Due to road construction, the Missouri Department of Transportation will be closing a portion of Jefferson Street north of Highway 50 as well as the Jefferson Street ramp from Highway 50. In addition, City of Lee’s Summit road crews are working on Jefferson Street, from Second Street to Sixth Street, with this work causing traffic delays. All closings and road work begins on March 9.
Due to the road construction and road work, the Lee’s Summit R-7 Transportation Department has made changes to some school bus routes. Some of these changes will impact pick-up and drop-off schedules for bus riders. Families affected by these changes are being notified by the Transportation Department.
All residents should also be aware that this road construction could impact other areas as traffic shifts to various streets causing congestion and delays in areas otherwise not associated with the construction.
