Another U.S. 69 headache today

More U.S. 69 construction turmoil for drivers this morning.

Work crews will be closing a big chunk Lenexa Drive, which runs in front of a number of business down the east side of I-35 from 87th Street to 75th Street. Construction will shut down the segment from Switzer Road to Mastin Street for three months starting at 9 this morning.

The 69 project calls for moving Lenexa Drive a little to the east so a new exit ramp can be built running from I-35 up to 75th Street through what is now a vacant tunnel.

A detour around the closed section of Lenexa Drive will be marked.
