KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Northbound I-435 RIGHT LANE over the Metropolitan Avenue bridge (between K-32 and Kansas Avenue) will be CLOSED for bridge deck repair work beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 26 and reopening to all traffic at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 28 in Kansas City, KS (Wyandotte County). See map above for lane closure location.

NOTE: Traffic control set up will begin around 8:30 a.m., thus traffic may start slowing at this time due to activity taking place on the highway shoulders and right of way.

Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage, cones and arrow boards. Drivers should expect some delays during the daily peak time commutes and may wish to adjust their travel times accordingly.
