Traffic Schedule

The Traffic Schedule is a listing of locations where the city traffic code is applied, i.e., stop signs, parking restrictions, speed limits, among others. The Traffic Schedule is a separate document from Chapter 18: Traffic, of the City Code. The Traffic Schedule is updated by Letters of Official Notice (LOON's) and Emergency Changes made by the Public Works Director. Temporary Changes are not incorporated into the Traffic Schedule and remain in effect for the period anticipated to be necessary.

LOON's and Emergency Changes amending the Traffic Schedule prior to the next update are not included in the Schedule PDF. Check for these updates listed separately on this page in addition to looking at the Traffic Schedule PDF. LOON's and Emergency Changes not listed below this paragraph have been incorporated into the Traffic Schedule section.

Due to the short-term nature of most Temporary Changes, these are not incorporated into the Traffic Schedule. Any temporary change will be listed below for the period during which it is anticipated to be in effect.

The only officially published version of the Independence Traffic Schedule is available through the City Clerk's Office, on the third floor of City Hall. (Phone number: 816-325-7010) The online version below may differ from the official version and should be relied upon for general information purposes only.
