Project OverviewDescripción del proyecto
Selected to build the I-435 & I-70 interchange project for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Emery Sapp & Sons (ESS) teams were challenged to replace the bridges within the interchange and concurrently construct a brand new interchange in a partial turbine design. This new interchange was designed to enhance safety within the densely-traveled Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals stadium corridor.
The team developed a fast-track schedule and meticulous phasing plan to efficiently reconstruct the high-profile interchange. The project included demolition of four existing structures over I-70 that required the complete closure of I-70 from Highway 291 to I-435 over a few weekends. It also included 10 full bridge replacements, removal of left exits, and major infrastructure improvements to the loop ramp configuration. Crews moved over 800,000 CY of material and placed 120,000 SY of concrete pavement all while having minimal impact on the over 200,000
vehicles that used the interchange daily
The I-70 & I-435 Interchange project was a monumental $48 million dollar reconstruction of one of Kansas City, Missouri's busiest highways. Our project team successfully transformed the previously existing cloverstack interchange into the first partial turbine interchange design
constructed in the state. ESS and teams were proud to bring best-in-class quality, innovation, and safety to this impressive project.
