WEEKDAY OVERNIGHT FULL ROAD & RAMP CLOSURE: Northbound I-35 at I-435 FULLY CLOSED and the northbound I-35 to westbound I-435 ramp CLOSED overnight for the setting of bridge girders on the eastbound and westbound I-435 mainline bridges beginning at 10 p.m. on Monday, July 25 and reopening at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25, weather permitting. Due to a delayed delivery of the bridge girders, this overnight closure has now been rescheduled for a later date.

Advance message boards will alert drivers to the overnight full road closure. Northbound I-35 traffic will detour via eastbound I-435 to northbound U.S. 69 to access northbound I-35. Northbound I-35 to westbound I-435 ramp traffic will detour via eastbound I-435 to Quivira Road exit to access westbound I-435. See NEW marked detour map below.
