Northbound U.S. 69 ramps to be closed in Overland Park

Commuters who need to get from U.S. 69 to I-435 in Overland Park might want to reconsider their route this morning.

Starting at 9 a.m. today, highway crews will close the ramps from northbound U.S. 69 to westbound I-435 and the from westbound I-435 to southbound U.S. 69. The ramps will be closed until noon, so bridge girders can be moved into place before they’re installed this weekend.

A detour will be marked while the ramps are closed.
