Weekend closure of southbound U.S. 69 in Overland Park slated

Driving will be difficult all weekend long on U.S. 69 through Overland Park.

Southbound U.S. 69 will be closed all weekend from 103rd Street to Interstate 435 starting at 9 tonight. The closure will last until 5 a.m. Monday, so work can continue on a new flyover ramp linking southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435.

Also closing today will be the ramp from 103rd Street to southbound U.S. 69, the ramp from westbound I-435 to southbound U.S. 69 and the ramp from southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435.

A possible detour would be to exit at 95th Street, go west to Quivira Road, south to I-435 and east back to U.S. 69.
