Highway crews to work on I-435 through Overland Park

More work is in store this morning for Interstate 435 through Overland Park.

Starting at 9 a.m., the ramp from northbound U.S. 69 to westbound I-435 will be closed and so will the ramp from westbound I-435 to southbound U.S. 69. The closure lasts until noon.

The ramps are being closed, so highway crews can install the decks on the new flyover ramp that will take traffic from southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435.

The $165 million project, which calls for widening I-435 to four lanes in each direction, is scheduled to be completed this fall.
