Shawnee Mission Parkway and the I-35 bridge

MERRIAM, Kan. — A major roadwork project expected to begin Monday near Shawnee Mission Parkway and the I-35 bridge has been pushed back a week.

The work includes repairing and resurfacing the I-35 bridge.

If you use Shawnee Mission Parkway on your commute, the eastbound and westbound lanes of Shawnee Mission Parkway over the I-35 bridge will be down to two lanes when the project begins March 20.

The roads impacted during this project will be Mastin Street and Pioneer Crossing Park to Ikea Way. Workers will be painting the bridge, patching it,and resurfacing it. There will also be some work along Carter Avenue, which is under the bridge.

Work will be going on during busy commute times, so you’ll either want to head out earlier or find an alternate route.
