The meeting of routes 35, 435 and K-10 is about to become a much more driver-friendly meeting as the Johnson County Gateway swings into full effect over the coming week.

Yesterday in Lenexa, officials celebrated a ribbon-cutting for the completion of the two-and-a-half year, $288 million project intended to make the convergence of I-35, I-435 and K-10 easier to navigate for the more than 230 thousand vehicles that travel the Gateway corridor each day and for the many more that are expected in the coming years.
