Due to pavement reconstruction at the Kansas Highway 7/Interstate 35/151st Street intersection, portions of lanes and ramps at the intersection will be closed over the next two weekends, weather permitting.
The Kansas Department of Transportation anticipates shuttering the ramp and lanes on the south side of Olathe from 9 p.m. on Friday, June 20 through 5 a.m. on Monday, June 23 and again from 9 p.m. on Friday, June 27 through 5 a.m. on Monday, June 30.
During those weekends, parts of the I-35 interchange at 151st Street will be closed, including the north side of 151st Street and the southbound I-35 exit ramp. Southbound K-7 traffic will be allowed through the intersection.
A detour will send southbound I-35 traffic north on K-7, west on Old U.S. 56 Highway and south on Lone Elm Road to reconnect with 151st Street. Northbound K-7 traffic will be detoured west on 151st Street and then north onto Lone Elm Road.
