87th Street construction will close two I-435 ramps

The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising motorists that construction on the 87th Street roundabouts will close the northbound on-ramp and southbound off-ramps to Interstate 435 beginning Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 9:30 a.m. until early May.

This construction, a part of Phase 2 of the 87th Street improvement project, is on schedule despite heavy snowfall.

The latest work will install roundabouts on 87th Street at the bottom of two of the Interstate 435 exit ramps.

“Our contractor plans to work through the winter to ensure that this work is completed in a timely fashion,” said Pat Klein, acting director of the Capital Projects Department. “This closure will allow that work to continue in the most efficient manner possible.”

Construction started on the 87th Street improvement project in June 2009. The $11 million roadway improvement will realign and widen 87th Street east of Highway 71, adding sidewalks, storm and sanitary sewers and other improvements to the roadway. In addition, roundabouts will be installed at both Interstate 435 intersections, Hillcrest Road and Newton Avenue. The project is scheduled for completion in early summer 2011.

Media inquiries and other requests for more information about this closure or the 87th Street construction project should be directed to Sean Demory, communications manager for the Capital Projects Department, 816-513-0059.
