KDOT warns drivers to expect major weekend delays
Highway construction projects originally scheduled for last weekend will be completed this weekend, according to a release from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
KDOT warns drivers to expect "major delays" if using westbound I-435 and to avoid the area if possible.
Roadwork on Interstate 435 began at 9 a.m. this morning with the closure of the entrance ramp from Quivira Road to I-435.
All lanes of westbound I-435 between U.S. Highway 69 and Interstate 35 will close at 7 p.m. tonight. All entrance and exit ramps between U.S. 69 and I-435, I-35 and I-435 and the westbound ramp from I-435 to Quivira Road will also be closed. All work is expected to be completed by 5 a.m. Monday morning, Oct. 17.
According to the release from KDOT, advance message boards will remind traffic of the closures and marked detours will be provided. Drivers can keep track of traffic online.
