According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, the construction company has finished it’s portion of the work on the Kansas Turnpike and not will shift to working on K-10.
On Monday, beginning at 9:00 a.m., crews will begin work at the east city limits of Lawrence. Eastbound and westbound K-10 will be reduced to one lane during work hours on the project. Work will take place on adjacent interchange ramps as well, but only one set of ramps will close at a time. Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage. Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes, is possible. A 55 mph speed limit will be posted throughout the project work zone during working hours. There will also be a 14-foot lane width restriction throughout the project during working hours.
No work will take place during peak travel times on K-10, between 6-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m., Monday through Friday; and during all Kansas University home football game days. The project is scheduled to be completed by early November.
