U.S. 69 construction delays likely most of the day

Drivers heading south on U.S. 69 through Overland Park can expect a clogged highway for most of today because of construction work.

The southbound side of the highway will be down to one lane from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can expect heavy delays during this period, so try to avoid it if you can.

The work is supposed to last only today.
