INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

Major delays and lane closures are expected for Interstate 470 and Route 291 in Independence. 

Crews will be doing striping and barrier work starting Friday into Monday morning. 

They will close the outside right lane of I-470 in both directions between east 39th Street and the Little Blue River bridge, meaning all loop ramps at the interchange to both I-70 and I-470 will be closed as early as Friday morning.

Traffic will be reduced on Monday to one lane in each direction. 

Backups are expected to reach up to 75 minutes, so it will be best to avoid the area. 

This work will last until early September. 

KC Scout is putting up new traffic signs that will help people get through this.
