Teleconference slated on C.R. 1

September 20, 2007

The Leavenworth County Commission will discuss improvements to County Road 1 leading to a proposed interchange with Interstate 70 via a teleconference with Kansas Department of Transportation and Kansas Turnpike Authority officials at 8 a.m. today at the county courthouse.

Topics for discussion include deciding where a tie-in with U.S. Highway 24-40 will go and issues before the land acquisition process begins along County Road 1.

"The biggest thing is where we're going to intersect with 24-40," Commissioner Dean Oroke said Tuesday.

An unofficial proposal sent recently by KDOT officials calls for the tie-in to go south of Honey Creek Road near the Gordon Harman Farmstead at a cost of $625,000, but Oroke said a more fitting location would be north of Honey Creek near the Heartland Community Church of the Nazarene.
