Wyandotte County ramp closures start today

Drivers trying to get back and forth from I-435 and I-70 in Wyandotte County are in trouble for the next couple of months.

Starting at 8:30 this morning, the northbound ramp from I-435 to eastbound I-70 will be closed and so will the ramp from eastbound I-70 to northbound I-435. The ramps won’t reopen until late October.

The ramp and lane closures in this area are part of a $4.6 million project to replace pavement. In early July, eastbound I-70 near the 435 interchange was reduced to one lane around the clock. It’s not expected to open back up until November.

Work on the westbound side of the interstate will continue next summer.
