The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has sent out a news release advising of the closure of ramps at the I-435 & US69 Highway Interchange. Please read the information below and plan an alternate route if applicable.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 25, the westbound I-435 to southbound US-69 ramp will CLOSE for reconstruction work on the interchange loop ramp. A marked detour will be provided. Westbound I-435 traffic will detour southbound on Blue Valley Parkway to southbound US-69.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 27, the southbound US-69 to westbound I-435 ramp will CLOSE for reconstruction work on the interchange loop ramp. A marked detour will be provided. Southbound US-69 traffic will detour to eastbound College Boulevard then to northbound US-69 back to westbound I-435.
