Johnson County drivers can expect overnight detours and delays early this week as crews set bridge girders as part of the Johnson County Gateway project at the Interstate 435 and I-35 interchange.
All lanes of westbound I-435 from Quivira Road to I-35 and northbound lanes of I-35 to the westbound I-435 ramp will be closed from 10 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday and from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday, weather permitting.
Marked detours will be provided. Westbound I-435 will detour through northbound U.S. 69. Northbound I-35 will detour through 95th Street.
The $288 million Gateway project is the Kansas Transportation Department’s largest ever and is intended to address traffic problems and improve efficiency and safety within the Interstate 435/Interstate 35/Kansas 10 interchange, which is used by more than 230,000 vehicles a day.
Updated daily traffic information for the project can be viewed at: www.jocogateway.com.
The current phase of the project is scheduled to be substantially completed by the end of 2016.
