K-7 and Johnson Drive Interchange Project Update-March 2011

If Mother Nature decides to play nice over the next week or so, new traffic changes will be set to take place on the K-7 and Johnson Drive interchange project in Johnson County the week of March 7th or March 14th.

What do you have to look forward to?  First of all, northbound and southbound K-7 will be reduced to one lane...moving you over to the new northbound lane so that crews can complete construction on the new southbound lanes.  This will last through late fall, weather permitting.

Second, and this is a biggie, the east leg of Clear Ceek Parkway will be closed for bridge constuction that will take Clear Creek traffic over K-7.  In other words, no more direct access to K-7 from Clear Creek.  Detours will take you to either Shawnee Mission Parkway or 47th Street, depending on where your destination is.

Lastly, access from southbound K-7 to 55th Street will be closed through Aprill 2011 (again, depending on the weather) while crews complete construction on the new southbound lanes.

I'll keep you posted on any other traffic updates for this ever changing area.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email or give me a call!
