Weather permitting, beginning at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 30, the right two lanes on northbound Interstate 255 over the eastbound and westbound ramps from Interstate 55/70 will be closed. The left lane on northbound Interstate 255 will remain open. These lanes are expected to be open by 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 1.
