Today, starting at 10 a.m., northbound I-435 will be reduced to one open lane from Kansas Avenue to just south of State Avenue so crews can switch traffic control from one side of the bridge to the other.
According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, this lane reduction will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. today, weather permitting.
Once the traffic control switch work is completed, the northbound I-435 to westbound I-70 ramp will reopen to unrestricted traffic by 3 p.m. today, weather permitting, according to KDOT.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and slow down when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
Project work is scheduled to be completed in early October 2016, weather permitting.
