<I>How many times in the past seven years has the Kansas Turnpike been under construction between Lawrence and Topeka? Does the Kansas Department of Transportation coordinate with the KTA with respect to scheduling of construction projects that are contiguous to the turnpike? When will the construction be finished?</I>

There have been four construction projects between Lawrence and Topeka in the past seven years, the KTA said. KTA and KDOT handle their own projects. They do coordinate if a project involves an interchange or road connecting to the turnpike.

The new east Topeka toll interchange should be completed in June 2001. The road replacement project between Lawrence and Topeka should be completed in October.
