More traffic delays should be expected this weekend
The Kansas Department of Transportation warns drivers to expect more traffic delays this weekend as work continues on the Interstate 35/Interstate 435 interchange.
Eastbound I-435 will be reduced to two open lanes from Lackman Road to I-35 and the southbound I-35 to eastbound I-435 ramp will be closed for bridge painting work around the clock beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 17. All lanes are expected to reopen at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 19.
While detours will be marked for the ramp closure, KDOT advises drivers to use an alternate route if possible. Closures may be viewed online and the project is expected to be complete by the end of July.
