I-35 in Kansas City.
I-35 at Cameron.
The highway has 2×4 lanes, and passes through downtown Kansas City. First, a stack interchange crosses Interstate 670, a short connecting highway through downtown. It then passes with 2×2 lanes along the west side of downtown, then merges onto Interstate 70. Both highways then run below ground level with 2×3 lanes along the north side of downtown. The dual numbering with I-70 is short-lived, as I-70 turns east to Saint Louis. After that, I-35 turns north, merging with Interstate 29, which begins here. With 2×2 lanes you cross the Missouri River via the Paseo Bridge.
Via a large industrial area you then arrive in northern Kansas City. At Gladstone, a Kansas City enclave, I-29 and I-35 split, I-29 runs to Omaha, I-35 toward Des Moines. On the northeast side of Kansas City, one crosses Interstate 435, the Kansas City ring road. After Liberty one leaves the Kansas City conurbation.
US 69 then parallels I-35, which heads north. The area here is slightly hilly, and slightly more varied than in Kansas. There are small forests from time to time. The area is very sparsely populated, there are hardly any places along the way. The only place of minimal size is Cameron, where one intersects US 36, a 2×2 trunk road that runs from Saint Joseph to Springfield, Illinois. I-35 continues the long way north, and in the hamlet of Bethany crosses US 136, a road from Maryville in the west to Keokuk in the east. In rural areas, one crosses the border into Iowa, after which Interstate 35 continues in Iowa towards Des Moines and Minneapolis.

The construction of I-35 has many similarities with the construction of I-29 in the same area. Both routes already had sections ready for the Interstate Highway system in the form of US Routes, in this case US 69 around Liberty, which opened in 1954 or earlier. The Paseo Bridge opened in 1954, which was replaced by the new Bond Bridge in 2010. Construction went smoothly in the 1960s, in 1965 the first section was opened outside the Kansas City area, at Cameron, and in 1967 the highway was open to traffic between downtown Kansas City and Cameron. In 1970, the last part opened in the Kansas City metropolitan area, along the west side of downtown. After that, construction slowed down a bit. In 1973, the northernmost section opened near the Iowa border, again similar to I-29. In 1978, the last link in Missouri was opened, between Altamont and Coffey,

Only 71,000 vehicles cross the Kansas border every day, quite few for an urban highway. 58,000 vehicles pass downtown, and 94,000 vehicles cross the Missouri River in Kansas City. Outside of Kansas City, intensities immediately drop to 21,000 vehicles. Further north there are barely 10,000 pieces.
