SHAWNEE COUNTY

 

I-70 from East Topeka Turnpike Toll Gate to Urish Road 

OVERNIGHT/WEEKEND LONG LANE & RAMP CLOSURES: Eastbound and westbound I-70, one direction at a time, will be reduced to one open lane in several mile-long increments during the overnight/weekend hours beginning on Sunday, May 15 through Fall 2016. for resurfacing work. Project work will begin in the eastbound lanes of I-70 at the west end of the project (Urish Road) moving east (to the KTA East Topeka Toll Gate). Adjacent interchange ramps will be closed during the project working hours as well. No two consecutive interchange ramps will be closed at the same time, though more than one ramp may be closed during the same timeframe. No marked detours will be provided during the ramp closures. Work will take place overnight, daily, Sunday through Thursday, beginning at 7 p.m. and reopening to traffic the following morning at 6 a.m.; and on weekends, 24/7 round the clock, beginning on Saturday at 6 p.m. and reopening to all traffic on Monday at 6 a.m. Project work is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2016. (REV. 5-4-16)

I-70 & Carnahan Avenue/Deer Creek Trafficway Interchange Area

A drainage improvement project occurring adjacent to and under I-70 at the Carnahan Avenue/Deer Creek Trafficway Interchange area began in the spring of 2015. The drainage improvement project includes the addition of two 14.2-foot diameter concrete pipes that will be installed underneath the eastbound and westbound I-70 lanes and ramps at the Carnahan Avenue/Deer Creek Trafficway Interchange area in Topeka (Shawnee County). There is currently one existing arch concrete culvert located underneath I-70 within the interchange area that serves as a drainage channel for Deer Creek. 

Installation work for the concrete pipes will begin on Monday, February 15, (start date shifted due to schedule delays involving pipe delivery) weather permitting. For approximately the first two weeks, project work will take place during one 12-hour shift per day, weekends included. Once the pipe installation process is fully underway, project work will then shift to 24/7 round the clock (via two 12-hour shifts) through early May 2016. Advance notice will be provided once the 24/7 round the clock project work is scheduled to begin.

> > Here’s what this means for drivers: There will be no direct traffic impacts to the traveling public as work will take place underneath the existing I-70 roadway.  

  • Each pipe section is delivered via its own semi due to its massive size and weight. There will be very little impact to local traffic as pipe sections will arrive 2-3 pieces per day. Flaggers will direct traffic as the semis deliver the pipes into the construction site. The pipe sections will be off loaded on the construction site itself.  
  • Once the 24/7 operations begin, there may be some residual noise that is heard by adjacent properties from the jacking of the pipe sections underneath the roadway. The outdoor lighting that will take place with the round the clock work will not impact traffic on I-70 or local arterial streets.

Project work is scheduled to be completed in early May 2016. (REV. 2-10-16)
