KDOT to host open house regarding I-435/US-69 interchange project
The Kansas Department of Transportation is hosting a public open house for the US Highway 69 and Interstate 435 Interchange Area Improvement Project from 4:30-6:30 p.m. today, July 7, at the DoubleTree Hotel located at 10100 College Boulevard, Overland Park.
Those who attend the open house can learn more about the construction phasing, traffic impacts, noise wall installation and watch a video simulation highlighting new traffic movements in the interchange area. KDOT staff and project members will be available to answer questions but no formal presentations will be made at this event.
Planned improvements on this project will add auxiliary lanes to I-435 between US-69 and Quivira Road. It will also continue improvements on US-69 from 103rd Street to 119th Street to address congestion at the I-435 and US-69 interchange. This phase of the US-69 and I-435 improvements in Johnson County is part of KDOT’s T-WORKS program and the selection of this improvement project was announced in February 2011.
Additional information about this project, construction schedules and traffic impacts will be available online after the public open house at http://www.ksdot.org/kcMetro.
