Commuters and other motorists heading to and from Kansas City this summer should expect delays ... but not until Thursday.

The Kansas Department of Transportation announced Monday that road work set to disrupt I-35 traffic through mid-September has been delayed by recent rain. The project had been scheduled to begin Monday, but now is expected to start 6 a.m. Thursday.

The right lanes of northbound and southbound I-35 at Homestead Lane in Johnson County — the site of the new divergent diamond interchange servicing the Kansas City Logistics Park intermodal rail hub — are expected to be closed 24/7 for ramp tie-in work through early fall, KDOT said.

“Drivers should expect delays during peak commute times and should allow extra time for their daily commutes,” the state agency said in a press release.
