The lane-widening project on I-35 from 67th to 75th streets STARTS FRIDAY evening! KDOT will close the southbound I-35 on- and off-ramps at 75th St. through July. 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.
Also, this Friday starting at 9 p.m., KDOT will COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN the 75th St. bridge above I-35 to replace drainage pipes along and under I-35. During this time, southbound I-35 traffic will have to exit at 75th St. and then will be rerouted back onto I-35 southbound.
KDOT will reopen the bridge on Saturday, March 21 at 10 p.m. Once the 75th St. bridge is open, southbound I-35 will go down to one lane until Sunday, March 22 at 8 p.m. Northbound I-35 will not be impacted. You should avoid the area if possible and detour at Shawnee Mission Parkway or 87th St.
Johnson Drive at Neiman Road will be down to one lane in both directions this weekend (March 20-22) and next weekend (March 27-29). Neiman Road will be closed during these timeframes.
