Part of I-235 closing for the weekend

A good portion of I-235 will be shut down starting early Saturday morning.

KDOT is closing the highway between K-96 and Zoo Blvd. at 6:00 a.m. Saturday. Crews are replacing beams for the 25th Street Bridge.

Crews hope to re-open the road Sunday evening.

KDOT suggests you detour from Zoo Blvd to 21st Street to Ridge Road to K-96.

This is part of KDOT's Red Project, which is revamping the intersections between I-235 and Central and I-235 and Kellogg.
