Inspection to close U.S. 69 to westbound I-435 ramp Friday morning

June 5, 2008


Commuters need to be on the lookout Friday morning for a ramp closure in Johnson County due to an inspection.

The southbound U.S. Highway 69 to westbound Interstate 435 ramp will be closed, weather permitting, from 9 a.m. to noon as crews conduct an inspection.

An advanced message board will alert drivers to the ramp closure, but no marked detours will be provided, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation. Drivers should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes, said Kimberly Qualls, a KDOT spokeswoman.

KDOT will post daily lane- and ramp-closure information about this inspection online at The inspection was originally scheduled for May 23, but it was rescheduled due to weather conditions that day.

To ask additional questions about the project, call Qualls at (785) 640-9340.
