The Kansas Department of Transportation sent out a reminder recently that the next phase of improvements to the I-435 Highway and US-69 Interchange area has now begun. Unfortunately, these improvements will come with some temporary inconveniences. Ramp closures at the interchanges of I-435 Highway and Quivira Road, I-435 Highway and US-69 Highway, and US-69 Highway and College Boulevard may take place. Short-term lane restrictions may also be likely. This is estimated to be a three-year project.
With the added driving challenges of winter weather looming, please remember to drive safely. Allow yourself a greater following distance on slick roads and watch out for changes in driving patterns. Getting to your destination safely is more important than getting there quickly.
