Drivers in Johnson County are getting ready for some traffic headaches. In just a few days, crews will close the 95th Street interchange at Interstate 35.
As part of the $288 million Johnson County Gateway Project, that area is scheduled to be under construction for 6 months.
Eastbound 435 will be shut down from K-10 to Quivira.
The shut down will last from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday morning. A number of nearby exits will also be closed through the weekend, said KDOT’s Kim Qualls.
There’s no way to rebuild a major highway interchange without causing some pain to nearby businesses and residents. But with the impending closure of 95 Street at Interstate 35, the Kansas Department of Transportation and the city of Lenexa are working to minimize the discomfort.
Your commute is about to change. You will need to pay extra attention as some of your exits may have moved.
Starting Friday, Oct. 23, 2015, Kansas City metro commuters will see a change in exit ramps and lanes on I-435, K-10 and I-35, according to a KDOT news release.
A major traffic switch is taking place at 5 a.m. Friday that will require drivers to pay extra attention or they might miss their exit at the Interstate 35 and Interstate 435 interchange. The new eastbound collector-distributor road that takes motorists from eastbound Kansas 10 and southbound Interstate 435 to northbound and southbound Interstate 35 is completed and will open to traffic.
