Drivers should expect major delays as emergency pavement repairs will reduce southbound Interstate 435 in Lenexa to one lane.
The Kansas Department of Transportation began the work at 9 a.m. Monday on the right shoulder at 87th Street.
Crews repairing the shoulder pavement hope to have the lane back open by Wednesday morning.
Northbound and southbound I-435 over 87th Street were both already reduced to two open lanes for repair work on the 87th Street bridge.
As part of the lane restrictions, traffic was shifted partly onto the right southbound shoulder and the shoulder pavement has not held up to the increased traffic.
