Delays tonight on I-435 in Johnson County

Expect more driving delays tonight on I-435 in Johnson County.

Westbound I-435 will be narrowed to one lane at U.S. 69 starting at 10 tonight and lasting through 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Also closing will be the ramps from westbound I-435 to southbound U.S. 69 and the ramp from northbound U.S. 69 to westbound I-435.

A similar closing occurred Monday night. Crews are painting the new bridges constructed at that location as part of the $165 million I-435 widening project, which was opened to traffic in December. This stretch of highway is one of the most congested in the metro area, so expect delays.
