Traffic Alerts from KDOT

I-435 & U.S. 69 Interchange Red Project

EXPECT DELAYS! RAMP CLOSURE: Eastbound I-435 to northbound U.S. 69 ramp will be CLOSED for bridge construction work beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 24/7 round the clock, through October 2013, weather permitting.

The ramp will be closed for construction work on bridge pier number three for the new southbound U.S. 69 to College Boulevard ramp bridge.

Advance message boards will alert traffic to the ramp closure. A marked detour will be provided. Eastbound I-435 traffic will continue east to the Antioch Road interchange exit then head back on westbound I-435 to northbound U.S. 69. Drivers should expect delays and must use alternate routes during the ramp closure.

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.
