I-435 and 87th Street Parkway closures planned
Posted on 06/09/2022

Ramp and lane closures will impact travel around the Interstate 435 and 87th Street Parkway interchange over the next several months as work continues on a major improvement project.

Current closures

Starting Wednesday, June 15, 2022, the southbound I-435 to 87th St. Pkwy. exit ramp closed for ramp widening work. The ramp is expected to be closed for about 30 days, weather permitting. 

A marked detour route is provided via southbound I-435 to the westbound 95th Street exit to northbound Renner Boulevard.

Starting Thursday, June 23, the northbound I-435 ramp will be closed to eastbound 87th Street Parkway traffic. This ramp is expected to reopen around July 15. 

A marked detour route is provided via eastbound 87th Street Parkway to southbound Maurer Road/Loiret Boulevard to westbound 95th Street. 

About the improvement project

Work began in summer 2021 on a series of improvements designed to improve safety and traffic flow at the I-435 and 87th Street Parkway interchange. These improvements include:

  • Additional through lanes and turn lanes on 87th Street Parkway between Maurer Road and Renner Boulevard
  • Additional lanes on the interstate ramps
  • 10-foot-wide trails along both sides of 87th Street Parkway
  • New storm sewer system
  • New traffic signal at the 87th Street Parkway and northbound I-435 exit ramp

The City of Lenexa received more than $3 million in federal funds for this project, which is expected to cost around $8.4 million. 

The project is expected to be complete later this year. For questions, contact Senior Project Manager/Engineer Matt Just, 913.477.7500.
