Motorists traveling 150 Highway between Lee's Summit and Grandview will notice more of the highway opening up by the end of August as traffic switches to the new, divided highway between Lumpkins Fork Creek and Horridge Road.
Traffic will switch to the divided highway beginning Wednesday, August 17. However, only one lane will be available in each direction through the end of August to allow work to be completed and remove crossovers.
The change to a divided, four-lane highway is part of nearly $69 million in improvements to 150 Highway between 71 Highway and Route 291. The final segment, between Horridge Road and Market Street, will be completed by next spring. The improvements also include a new single-point urban interchange at 150 Highway and 71 Highway, which opened last fall.
