I-35 Expansion
March 20 – November

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) is widening I-35 between 67th and 75th streets. 

KDOT will close the southbound I-35 on- and off-ramps at 75th St. starting March 23. Traffic should detour to Shawnee Mission Parkway. 

The northbound I-35 on-ramp at 75th St. will be closed mid-July through November, when KDOT anticipates the project will be complete.
