K-7/169 at I-35 Pavement Repair Project to Begin April 28

Beginning Monday, April 28, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin a pavement replacement project on 169/K-7 over I-35 between the northbound and southbound interchange exit ramps in Olathe. This project will require the closure of northbound and southbound K-7/169 exit ramps through mid-July, weather permitting. A marked detour will be provided, and access to local businesses will be maintained throughout the project duration. 

Project work includes partial and full-depth concrete patching on the mainline lanes and interchange exit ramps in both directions. Work will take place during daylight hours Monday through Friday, with some occasional weekend work. 

Drivers should expect some delays and must use alternate routes during the roadway and ramp closures. Updated daily traffic information for this project can be viewed online at KSDOT.org/KCMetro/LaneClose.asp
