I-35 & I-435 Interchange Long-Term Dual Loop Ramp Closures

 

24/7 LONG-TERM DUAL LOOP RAMP CLOSURES: Northbound I-35 to westbound I-435 loop ramp will be CLOSED for pavement reconstruction and tie-in work, 24/7 round the clock, beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 10 through mid-June 2016, weather permitting. Then the southbound I-35 to eastbound I-435 loop ramp will be CLOSED for the same work, 24/7 round the clock, beginning at 10 p.m. on Monday, April 11 through late October 2016, weather permitting.

NEW CLOSURE! OVERNIGHT ONLY RAMP CLOSURE: Lackman Road to eastbound I-435 ramp will be CLOSED for pavement marking work due to traffic shift for above ramp closures beginning at 8 p.m. on Monday, April 11 and reopening to all traffic at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, April 12, weather permitting. Marked detour will be provided. Lackman Road traffic will detour via southbound Lackman Road to eastbound College Boulevard to northbound Quivira Road or northbound Lackman Road to westbound 95th Street to northbound Renner Boulevard to access eastbound I-435.

NEW CLOSURE! OVERNIGHT ONLY RAMP CLOSURE: Northbound I-35 to eastbound I-435 ramp will be CLOSED for pavement marking work due to traffic shift for above ramp closures beginning at 10 p.m. on Monday-Tuesday, April 11-12 and reopening to all traffic at 5 a.m. on Tuesday-Wednesday, April 12-13, weather permitting (second night is only if needed). Marked detour will be provided. Northbound I-35 traffic will detour via eastbound 87th Street to southbound U.S. 69 to access eastbound I-435.

Advance message boards will alert drivers to the ramp closures. Drivers should expect major delays during peak commute times and must use alternate routes throughout the project duration. Marked detours will be provided as follows. See marked detour map above.

NB I-35 to WB I-435 ramp traffic to detour via eastbound 87th Street to southbound U.S. 69 to westbound I-435. U-Turns are NOT permitted on 87th Street.

SB I-35 to EB I-435 ramp traffic to detour via southbound I-35 to southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435 or via eastbound 119th Street northbound I-35 to eastbound I-435. We recommend that drivers use the detour route via southbound U.S. 69, and NOT the eastbound 119th Street route. The eastbound 119th Street detour route is provided as a backup marked detour route for those drivers who miss the southbound U.S. 69 detour route.

Virtual Drive Video Series for Completed JoCo Gateway Phase 2 Project Now Available Online

Virtual Drive Video Series for Completed JoCo Gateway
Phase 2 Project Now Available Online

Motorists can now ‘virtually drive’ the completed Johnson County Gateway Phase 2 Design-Build Project via a series of videos that are being released today. The Kansas Department of Transportation along with the project contractor, Gateway Interchange Constructors, is launching the online video series to provide a drive-through and aerial view look as to how drivers will navigate through the Phase 2 project that is scheduled for completion in December 2016. The video series will also provide motorists with a better understanding of the final interchange configuration and how their travel will be improved through the interchange area.
Some of the major interchange improvements include adding new two-lane flyover bridge ramps from westbound I-435 to southbound I-35, eastbound I-435 to northbound I-35 and from eastbound K-10 to northbound I-35. Collector-distributor roads are being built to help improve safety by reducing weaving and separating interstate traffic from traffic exiting at the local interchanges.
The entire online Johnson County Gateway Project video series is available on the project website: http://jocogateway.com/news-info-events/video-gallery/. Below you will find a descriptive list of the five videos in the series now available.
• Follow-along simulation of entire project

• Eastbound K-10 to northbound I-435 and I-35 improvements
o https://youtu.be/hUSJz2ilG0c
o This drive-along simulation shows the improvements that will be made from eastbound K-10 to northbound I-435 and I-35, including the new collector-distributor road that will separate traffic from the mainline lanes, providing congestion relief and reducing weave movements.

Westbound K-10 to Ridgeview Road improvements
o https://youtu.be/bodkHjrxeMs
o This drive-along simulation shows the improvements that will be made from westbound K-10 to Ridgeview Road, including a look at the new diverging diamond interchange.
Over 230,000 vehicles use the I-435/I-35/K-10 Interchange today and that number is estimated to grow to 380,000 by the year 2040. This traffic demand volume increase along with future economic development potential, declining infrastructure and roadway safety concerns are several of the key reasons for much needed improvements in the interchange area.
The Johnson County Gateway Phase 2 Design-Build Project will improve 90 percent of the existing traffic problems drivers experience today and 50 percent of the projected 2040 traffic problems. Construction will be occurring throughout the project area in order to get things done quickly and efficiently.
The budget for Phase 2 of the Johnson County Gateway is $288 million, which includes a $3 million schedule incentive GIC accepted to accelerate construction by seven months to complete work by December 31, 2016. This includes T-WORKS construction funding, additional funding from the cities of Lenexa and Olathe, and funding for design and engineering work. Project construction began in spring 2014.
For more information on the design-build process or the Johnson County Gateway Project, please contact Kimberly Qualls, Northeast Kansas Public Affairs Manager, at (785) 640-9340 or kqualls@ksdot.org or visit the project #jocogateway project website: www.jocogateway.com.
