MoDOT Invites Community to Open House Public Meeting to Learn About I-435 Project

For more information, contact Michele Sewart at 816-607-2027.

KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City District of the Missouri Department of Transportation has issued an open invitation to commuters and residents along I-435 to learn more about a project known as the I-435 South Loop Link. Work is anticipated to begin in spring of 2018 and be fully completed by late spring 2020.

 On Feb. 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Center Middle School at 326 E 103rd St, Kansas City, MO 64114, anyone interested in this project can stop in for an open-house style meeting to discuss specifics with the project team.

 Tis more-than-three-mile project replaces the bridges at Wornall and Holmes, rehabilitates the bridges at 104th Street and the Blue River, and upgrades the pavement on I-435 which includes adding another lane -- all while maintaining the current four lanes of traffic during construction during peak hours.

Additional improvements include removing the loop ramps at the Holmes Road Interchange, 12 foot inside shoulders along I-435, increased vertical clearance under the Wornall road bridge, new taller and safer concrete barrier wall and longer merge lanes in critical locations.

The I-435 corridor was originally constructed in 1966 as a six-lane freeway, an additional lane was added in phases from 1983 to 1994. Minor improvements have been made over the past 20 years by both Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and MoDOT, but overall this corridor has been left virtually unchanged since 1994.
