Work on a Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) bridge repair project on the westbound I-70 to I-435 ramp began earlier this month.

Project work on the ramp bridge, located over the I-435 exit to State Avenue, includes bridge joint replacements, bridge patching, and mill and overlay. For the duration of the project, the I-435 northbound and State Avenue eastbound exist ramps via westbound I-70 will remain closed. The detour for this area is:

  • Westbound I-70 traffic will travel to the 110th Street exit and turn left to travel south, then turn left and use the 110th Street to eastbound I-70 entrance ramp and continue to enter northbound I-435.

Traffic will be controlled by barricades, message boards, signs, channelizers, and warning lights. Comanche Construction of Olathe is the contractor for the $440,000 project. Work is permitted daily and nightly, Monday through Saturday, and is expected to be completed in late July.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. To stay aware of all road construction projects across Kansas, go to www.kandrive.gov or call 5-1-1. Drive safely and always wear your seat belt.
