Eudora News and Information

The overlay and mill work project on K-10 that has been ongoing for the last few weeks will impact Eudora this weekend.

According to a release form the Kansas Department of Transportation, the eastbound and westbound entrance/exit ramps at the Church Street interchange will be closed for mill and overlay work beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21 and will reopen to all traffic at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 22.  Only one set of the Church Street interchange ramps will be closed at a time. When one pair of the interchange ramps are finished and reopened, then the other set of ramps will close.  NOTE: There will be no lane closures on K-10 during this time period.

Advance message boards will alert drivers to the ramp closures. No marked detours will be provided. Drivers should expect minor delays and must use alternate routes during the ramp closures.

This work is part of the project that includes resurfacing all lanes of K-10 in Douglas County in both directions and adding rumble strips to the shoulders of both eastbound and westbound lanes.   The project is still on track, according to KDOT to be completed in early November.

Last week, it was announced that the project to resurface K-10 in Douglas County would begin on Monday, September 12.  Today, KDOT officials have stated that, due to scheduling conflicts, the K-10 project start date has been moved to Monday, September 19th.

The entire 8.5 mile stretch of K-10 in Douglas County will also be resurfaced and the shoulders will be widened to 10-foot outside shoulders and 6-foot inside/median shoulders.  Rumble strips will be placed on both the interior and exterior shoulders.

According to KDOT spokesperson Kimberly Qualls, the project will start at the eastern city limits of Lawrence and both eastbound and westbound traffic will be reduced to one-lane and the speed limit lowered to 55 mph during work hours on the project.  The press release also states that no work will take place during the peak travel times of 6-9 a.m and 3-6 p.m weekdays. Work will also be suspended on Saturdays when KU has a home football game.  Crews will work primarily during the overnight hours, though some daytime hours may be used for repaving and reconstruction.  The project is expected to be completed by early November 2011.

Drivers along K-10 should expect delays and are encouraged to find alternate routes if possible during the construction project.
