KANSAS CITY METRO TRAFFIC ALERT: Westbound I-435 to Quivira Road Exit Ramp 45-Day CLOSURE TRAFFIC ALERT for October 13-November 26

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Westbound I-435 to Quivira Road exit ramp will be CLOSED to all traffic for ramp reconstruction work, 24/7 round the clock, beginning at 1:00 a.m. on Monday, October 13 and will reopen to all traffic on Wednesday, November 26, weather permitting.

Advance message boards will alert traffic to the ramp closure.

A marked detour will be provided. Westbound I-435 traffic will detour by taking the exit before the U.S. 69 interchange (just after Antioch Road interchange) and follow the collector-distributor road that runs parallel to westbound I-435 (on the north side) to exit at Quivira Road.

Drivers should expect delays during peak travel times and must use alternate routes during the ramp closure.
