Expect delays. All lanes of southbound I-35 from 175th Street to K-33 will be closed for bridge construction work beginning at 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 28 and reopening to unrestricted traffic at 5 a.m. on Friday, March 29,
weather permitting. These lane closures havebeen rescheduled due to the weekend’s winter storm impacts.
Southbound I-35 will be completely closed for the setting of girders on the new Homestead Lane Bridge.
Advance message boards will alert traffic to the roadway closure. A marked detour will be provided. Southbound I-35 traffic will exit at U.S. 56/175th Street and head westbound on U.S. 56 to southbound K-33 and take K-33 back to southbound I-35.
Drivers should expect delays and must use alternate routes during the roadway closure. The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
