EXPECT DELAYS! 24/7 LANE CLOSURES: Northbound and southbound I-35 right lanes at Homestead Lane will be CLOSED for ramp tie-in work for the new interchange, 24/7 round the clock, beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, July 29 through mid-September 2013, weather permitting. To provide the traveling public with timely traffic impacts through the I-35 project work zone, the Kansas Department of Transportation has launched a temporary traffic system through the I-35 corridor from K-33 to US-56 in southern Johnson County, known as the I-35 Smart Work Zone Traffic System. The Smart Work Zone Traffic System includes portable changeable message signs, cameras, speed sensors, and variable speed limit signs on the I-35 mainline lanes to help monitor traffic flow and advise drivers
to potential delays via slow traffic, traffic incidents, etc. Drivers will be able to view the roadways and obtain real-time traffic information through the Smart Work Zone system online at: LINK
