I-235 Green Project

  • Traffic on I-235
    A glimpe at the recent past: Southbound I-235 traffic is no longer on these lanes and northbound lanes are fully open.
  • Removal of old SB I-235
    Dirt work and concrete pavement placement is now a thing of the past. All three lanes of SB I-235 are open (plus the SB I-235 ramps at Broadway).
  • L. Ark River bridge pour
    A bridge pour on a new bridge over the Little Arkansas River was successfully completed in spite of distant lightning. Traffic is now using the new bridge.
  • Removal of Seneca bridge over 235
    The Seneca Street bridge over I-235 was removed and will not be replaced. Businesses and residents now have access from N. Meridian Avenue.
