Bonner Springs-area lanes of I-70 to shift, narrow for construction

April 28, 2014

The Kansas Department of Transportation recently announced that construction of the new interchange at Interstate 70 and Kansas Highway 7 soon will affect traffic on I-70.

Eastbound I-70/Kansas Turnpike from 134th Street to just west of K-7 will be shifted to the north, restricted to two 12-foot wide lanes and both the inside and outside shoulders will be reduced to 4-foot. This will begin sometime this week and is scheduled to continue through Oct. 1.

This traffic shift is for adjacent ramp construction work for Phase One of the K-7 & I-70 Interchange Project.

Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage and concrete barriers. Drivers should expect minor delays during their daily commutes.
