270 Construction Delays/Blake Shelton Concert

We are driving down from Illinois Friday for the Blake Shelton concert. I just noticed that 270 is under construction. Can someone please tell me if we should expect significant delays coming in 55 S to 270 W to I-70 W? I just want to ensure that we allow enough time, and we don't run into any unexpected, significant delays. Thank you, in advance, for your assistance!

I don't drive that way so I'd wait for someone who does to reply. But in general I don't hear much about that stretch on the traffic reports. I'm not saying you might not hit some traffic, but unless there's an accident it shouldn't be major.

My only other suggestion would be to go 55S >>> 270W >>> 370W >>> 141/Earth City Expressway south. One of the Blanchette Bridges over the Missouri river is being rebuilt so I-70 between 270 and St. Charles is a pretty big mess as they jam both traffic ways onto one span.

As I understand that show is sold out or very close to it. Get there early and expect an hour or more to get out of the parking lot after the concert.
