U.S. 69 in Overland Park down to one lane in both directions

Plan for another bad week on U.S. 69 in Overland Park.

The overcrowded highway will be down to one lane in both directions starting at 9 this morning from 103rd Street to I-435 for bridge work.

The lane closures will last until 3 p.m. today. However, the lane closures will be repeated from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily through Wednesday.

Reducing the highway to one lane in this area typically leads to extensive backups, so plan for delays or find another route if you’re in a hurry.

This stretch of highway is traveled by about 87,000 vehicles a day.
