Wheel Genius: Road work planned this week

June 6, 2010



• The Kansas Turnpike’s East Lawrence interchange, which is Exit 204, remains closed for reconstruction. It is expected to reopen by Thanksgiving.

• Construction work continues at the intersection of North Second and Locust streets in North Lawrence. The entire project is scheduled for completion in August.

• Pavement-patching and road-resurfacing work will cause intermittent delays on streets in North Lawrence. The city’s annual repaving program continues, with crews working on a number of residential streets.

• The right lane for traffic heading north on Iowa Street will remain closed this week from Harvard Road to Ninth Street as crews replace an underground water line. Also continuing: intermittent lane and access closures west of Iowa on Orchard Lane, from Iowa to Centennial Drive; Westdale Road, from Harvard to Yale Road; and on Yale, from Westdale to Iowa.

• Crews will continue crack-sealing work, generally on streets east of Iowa Street. Temporary lane closures are expected but no detours onto other streets are scheduled.

• The 900 block of New York Street is closed to through traffic as crews work to restore it as a brick street.

U.S. Highway 24

• Mud Creek bridge along U.S. Highway 24, east of Lawrence Municipal Airport, remains limited to one lane of traffic as crews add pavement to the bridge deck. Expect delays, as traffic is governed by temporary traffic signals expected to be in service until late fall.

Interstate 70

• Beginning Monday, drivers on the Kansas Turnpike just east of Lawrence will be squeezed into one lane in each direction, as crews prepare to rebuild turnpike lanes from just east of the interchange to a point just went of the Lawrence service area. The limits will be expected to remain until just before Thanksgiving; the service area is scheduled to remain open throughout construction.

• Westbound I-70 is reduced to one lane from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily except Sundays, extending from 3.3 miles just west of Urish Road to Danbury Lane and also from just east of Carnahan Avenue to the Kansas Turnpike Authority east toll booth plaza, all in Shawnee County, for concrete repair work. Work is scheduled to be finished in October.

• Drivers heading west on I-70, from 94th to 110th streets in Wyandotte County, are limited to a single lane as crews replace pavement near Kansas Speedway and I-70’s connections with Interstate 435, a project expected to last through late summer. The ramp for traffic from northbound I-435 to westbound I-70 is closed and is not scheduled to reopen until late summer.

• The left lane for traffic heading east on I-70, from 110th to 94th streets in Johnson County, will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday for paving work.

Interstate 470

• The exit ramp normally used by drivers heading west on I-470 and turning onto Fairlawn Road in Shawnee County is closed as part of an intersection-reconstruction project at 29th Street. The ramp will be closed around the clock into July.

• The exit ramp normally used by drivers heading west on I-470 and turning onto 21st Street in Shawnee County will be reduced to two open lanes, 24 hours a day, through June 14 as the city of Topeka conducts pavement repairs along 21st.

Interstate 435

• Traffic heading north on Interstate 435 in Johnson County will face varying lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday from 79th Street to Midland Drive, and from Lackman Road to Shawnee Mission Parkway, as crews repair pavement.

• Traffic heading north on I-435 will face alternating lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday from Midland Drive to 87th Street in Johnson County, as crews repair pavement.

Interstate 35

• The right lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday for traffic heading north on Interstate 35 in Johnson County, from 87th to 75th streets, as crews mark pavement.

• Look for lane restrictions this week along I-35 between 7 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. at the following interchanges, as crews mark pavement: Antioch, Johnson Drive, Shawnee Mission Parkway, 67th Street, 75th Street, 87th Street, 95th Street, 119th Street, 151st Street, 175th Street, Gardner Road and Edgerton Road (Sunflower Road).

"The left lane for traffic heading east on I-70, from 110th to 94th streets in Johnson County, will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday for paving work."

I think you mean Wyandotte County, since I-70 doesn't go thru JoCo.
