MoDOT: I-70 West blocked at MM 52

An early-morning tractor-trailer crash has blocked all westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at Mile Marker 52. This is near the city of Concordia.

MoDOT expects that the closure will last through the morning hours.

Traffic already in the area is being diverted onto Route T,

However, drivers and dispatchers should consider using US 65 South to US 50 West to I-470 to I-70 as an alternate. Expect stoplights in the Sedalia area and commuter traffic on this route.

OSOW loads assigned this route must not deviate from the route. Stop movement and call MoDOT Motor Carrier Services for a permit revision if a load is already en route.
