Kansas City loop 435 can be very heavy with traffic -- I'd advise to avoid 435 during the morning and evening commute times.

Yes I have driven I-435 around Kansas City more than once. It is much easier than staying on I-35 through town.

There are some confusing signs as you enter Kansas City from the North in regard to I-435 ... they are for North Bound I-435 (and to the Kansas City airport). Wait until the sign says I-435 South (I think it is exit 12)

Last year there was construction near the Missouri River bridge ... but it was for only about a mile ... it will probably be completed by this year.

I-40 is an extremely rough road in either direction from Kingman to Flagstaff aside form the winter weather issue. The trucks have really roughed up both inside and outside lanes. We came across I-40E from Bakersfield to Needles and the road was so rough it shook a rear wheel hub cover loose and we lost it and didn't know it until we stopped at a rest stop. I definitely recommend avoiding I-40 if possible.

I live 120 miles north of Flagstaff. That time of year going through Flag is a dice game although they do open the road quickly after a storm you will still have snow and ice to deal with. You are much better off going south before you get to ABQ, way before. Take 10 and enjoy the area where lots of snow birds head to in winter. As mentioned, fill up before you cross the river into Calif.

If you are taking I-40 thru AZ and CA, DO NOT get yourself in a position to have to buy gas in Needles. One of the highest prices in CA. Twenty miles east on I-40, just inside AZ, exit 9 is a Pilot/FJ, Loves, and a Terrible Hearbst(Chevron, I believe) that has fuel in the range of $1 less per gal.
