In order to complete the widening and pavement reconstruction on I-435 between U.S. 69 and I-35 while still maintaining three through lanes of traffic, GIC will ‘split traffic’ to accommodate the construction zone. This year you will see a westbound lane on the eastbound side of I-435 between two concrete safety barriers. Next year, this configuration will be reversed.  The graphics illustrate how this will work.

This graphic shows the lane movements and work area on eastbound and westbound I-435.
