World Series traffic congestion can be expected around the Truman Sports Complex, particularly along I-70 and I-435 from midday today throughout the early evening. MoDOT urges baseball fans heading to the game to leave in plenty of time to ensure you are parked and in your seat by the 7:07 p.m. start of Game 1.
A sell-out crowd combined with the usual afternoon rush hour traffic can lead to backups and delays for those who are accustomed to normal game-day traffic. MoDOT and Kansas City Scout will do their part to help. Motorists are urged to check up to the minute traffic conditions online before heading out by going to www.modot.org and clicking on the Traveler Information Map, and also to www.kcscout.net for the latest information on delays and congestion. Scout message boards along major routes will help alert motorists to any potential problems.
Fans going to Wednesday's game should also expect the same conditions.
For both games, the parking lots will open at 2 p.m. and the stadium will open at 4:30 p.m.
