And if you thought the lane closures on U.S. 69 near 87th Street were bad enough.
The congestion will move farther south starting at 7:30 Thursday night when northbound 69 will be down to one lane from 135th Street to College Boulevard. The northbound side of the highway will open up to two lanes at 5:30 a.m. Friday. But it will be back down to one lane for the entire weekend starting at 7:30 Friday night.
And in case your forgot, southbound 69 from I-35 to I-435 will be closed the entire weekend starting at 10 p.m. Friday. And the ugliness will continue for 10 days starting Monday when 69 will be down to one lane from I-35 to I-435 around the clock until July 29.
You might want to try I-35 or some other north-south city streets through Overland Park.
