There is going to be a major closure on I-70 from Feb 21-24 2020 and long delays are expected. Drivers should be aware of this and plan ahead. Always check your route before you leave and have a traffic app running the entire time you are driving even if you run the same route over and over. This closure is for I-70 in the Kansas City area and details can be found HERE. Officials are telling drivers to take I-470 as a detour but several ramps are also closing. If you are headed through the area please look at the article for a map of the closure and details of the detour so you are not stuck in long backups. If you have a delivery in the area call ahead and ask your customer what they recommend to get in and out. That ELD clock always runs no matter the road construction. Don't let this delay you and run out your clock.
Use a good dash cam to make sure you can prove what happened when something does happen. Check out this good dash cam HERE.
See you on the road!
