    From Eric Ramsy;

    I recently attended a planning meeting for an event in which they requested ham radio support.

     

    Web site for the event: http://www.winforkctri.org/

     

    Location: Smithville Lake

     

    Anticipated race participants: 1000

    Anticipated crowd: 3000

     

    Event Date: July 25

    Mobile Command set up: Friday July 24 afternoon or evening and staff on Saturday July 25 from 7am to noon.

     

    Additional ARES posts:

    ·         Mobile Command – two to three

    ·         one as a shadow in the event support car

    ·         one or more at the bike turnaround

    ·         one or more at the transition point in sailboat cove

    See maps to get an idea of where these posts will be located.

     

    Primary purpose is to assist with communication due to potential for radios to be too busy or not working. Especially if an emergency needs to be communicated.

     

    So, need minimum of 5, prefer 8, 10, 12???

     

    Thanks for considering. Please let me know if ARES can support this request.

     

     

    Eric G. Ramsey

    Road work on I-29 to begin

    Courtesy of KC Star; 

    Beginning April 21, crews will rehabilitate 12 bridges along the Interstate 29 corridor between Interstates 435 and 635. The start date was delayed a day, awaiting material delivery, according to MoDOT.

    The work will cause lane reductions, narrow lanes and ramp closures.

    Motorists are urged to use alternate routes during the six months, including I-435 and U.S. 169.

    Here is what will impact drivers:

    ▪ Two lanes of I-29 in each direction between Missouri 45/64th Street and 112th Street will remain open throughout the duration of the project.

    ▪ I-29 will be reduced to one lane in each direction at Missouri Route D/Cookingham Drive for 80 days.

    ▪ The ramp from eastbound Missouri 152 to southbound I-29 will close for the duration of the project.

    ▪ I-29 will narrow at bridge locations.

    ▪ There will be temporary closures on Route D/Cookingham Drive, 112th Street, Tiffany Springs Parkway, Barry Road, 72nd Street and Missouri 45/64th Street during off-peak hours.
