Eastbound I-435 closures set next weekend
Eastbound lanes of Interstate 435 at the U.S. Highway 69 interchange will close overnight the weekend of May 16-18 for bridge construction work.
Closures will include all eastbound lanes of I-435 from U.S. 69 to Antioch Road, the ramp from eastbound I-435 to northbound U.S. 69, and the ramp from southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435. All lane and ramps will close beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, May 16, and will reopen to all traffic at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 17, and then will close again beginning at 10 p.m. Saturday, May 17, and will reopen to all traffic at 10 a.m. Sunday, May 18. Project work is scheduled to be completed on Sunday, May 18, weather permitting.
Advance message boards will be set on Monday, May 12, to alert drivers to the lane closures.
When work commences, a marked detour will be provided. Eastbound I-435 traffic will detour south on U.S. 69 to College Boulevard and then back north to I-435. Drivers should expect major delays and are advised to use alternate routes, if possible.
