U.S. Highway 69 toll lane project set to begin work in 2022 — here’s what drivers can expect

KDOT is building toll lanes on U.S. 69 Highway in Overland Park.

The first phase of construction to add toll lanes to U.S. Highway 69 beginning at 103rd Street and ending at 151st Street is set to begin around the midpoint of 2022. Before that KDOT is offering the public a chance to comment on a noise study in January. File image.

Drivers have around six or seven more months to abide existing conditions on U.S. Highway 69 in Overland Park before construction on express toll lanes begins later this year.

Eventually, the construction disruption is expected to result in a less painful commute, toll lanes advocates say.
