Drivers who rely on 75th Street in Overland Park should seek an alternate route this weekend. A construction project will force the major east-to-west road to close one block east and west of Antioch Road. The street closes at 9 a.m. Friday and will reopen by 7 a.m. Monday. Drivers heading north and south on Antioch will be able to pass through the intersection. One lane of northbound Antioch, however, will be closed. Drivers also will not be able to turn onto 75th Street. Suggested detours include Interstate 35 to Shawnee Mission Parkway to Metcalf Avenue for eastbound traffic and Metcalf Avenue to Shawnee Mission Parkway to Interstate 35 for westboud traffic. The closure will allow crews to reconstruct storm drainage pipes that run underneath 75th Street in that area.
