TRAFFIC ALERT: I-435 & U.S. 69 Interchange

EXPECT DELAYS! DAYTIME RAMP CLOSURES: Eastbound I-435 to northbound U.S. 69 ramp will be CLOSED for the constructing bridge piers on Wednesday-Thursday, January 23-24 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day. Crews will be constructing bridge piers for the new ramp bridge from southbound U.S. 69 to College Boulevard.

Advance message boards will alert traffic to the ramp closures. A marked detour will be provided. Eastbound I-435 traffic will detour via southbound U.S. 69 to the College Boulevard exit back onto northbound U.S. 69. Drivers should expect delays and must use alternate routes during the ramp closures.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.

NOTE: In the event of inclement weather (rain, snow, etc.), the ramp closures will be suspended and rescheduled for a later date.
