Highway, road projects could slow your travel this week
A rundown of road and highway projects that could slow your travel in the coming days, taken from information provided by the Kansas Department of Transportation and Kansas Turnpike Authority:North Second Street• Bridge work adjacent to the Kansas Turnpike in North Lawrence will spur intermittent overnight closures of North Third Street early this week. The closures — each lasting 10 to 15 minutes — are set to run from 9 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday, weather permitting. They could continue overnight Tuesday, and perhaps overnight Wednesday. Contractors need to close the road while lifting nine steel beams into place for a new turnpike bridge above North Third.Interstate 70• The left lane of Interstate 70 will be closed, for traffic headed east, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday between First and Adams streets in Topeka. That’s to allow for pavement repairs.Kansas Highway 10• The left lane of Kansas Highway 10 will be closed, for traffic headed west, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at Renner Road in Johnson County. Crews are scheduled to be making guardrail repairs.Interstate 435• Bridge work will squeeze traffic into two open lanes along Interstate 435 at Roe Avenue in Johnson County. The work is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Nall Avenue to westbound I-435 exit will remain open, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.• The left lane of I-435 is set to be closed, for traffic headed north, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Kansas Avenue. Crews are installing signs.• Bridge work is set to close the two right lanes for traffic headed west on I-435 at U.S. Highway 69 in Johnson County from 10 p.m. Monday through 5 a.m. Tuesday, and from 10 p.m. Tuesday through 5 a.m. Wednesday. Two ramps also are set to be closed during those overnight periods: from northbound U.S. 69 to westbound I-435, and from westbound I-435 to southbound U.S. 69.
