Interstate 635 (abbreviated I-635) is a connector highway between Interstate 35 in Overland Park, Kansas and Interstate 29 in Kansas City, Missouri, approximately 12 miles (19.5 kilometers) long. It is mostly in the U.S. state of Kansas, servicing the city of Kansas City, Kansas, but extends into Kansas City, Missouri as well. The freeway's southern terminus is at a stack interchange with I-35. South of this, the mainline becomes an expressway carrying U.S. 69 (further south, U.S. 169, Metcalf Avenue.

The freeway provides a route around downtown Kansas City by crossing through residential areas of Kansas City, Kansas and Riverside, Missouri. It also provides another direct route to Kansas City International Airport.

In both Kansas and Missouri, the road has signs identifying it as the Harry Darby Memorial Highway, named after a U.S. Senator from Kansas.

Like Interstate 435, I-635's mileposts do not reset after crossing into Missouri.

History

At one point during planning of Interstate 635, it was to be built into and through the Fairfax Area and cross the Fairfax Bridge and the Platte Purchase Toll Bridge in Kansas City, KS. However, I-635 didn't use this route and by pass the Fairfax Area just to the North into Riverside, MO. However part of the originally proposed alignment was built as a spur going into Fairfax as K-5.[2]

Projects to reconstruct the interchange with I-70 and the bridge over the Santa Fe Railyard in Argentine have been recently been completed. Maintenance work on the bridge over the Missouri River finished in September 2005.
