U.S. 75 repairs slated to be completed mid-July

Kansas Department of Transportation has announced that sometime during the week of June 23-28, southbound U.S. 75 traffic, from Topeka Boulevard in Shawnee County to the U.S. 56 junction in Osage County, will be shifted to the opposite lane with one open lane, so that crews can complete bridge approach pavement work. Drivers are advised to expect delays and 24/7 lane closures. The southbound U.S. 75 had been reduced to one lane for bridge approach work, although all asphalt overlay work has been completed. Project work is scheduled to be completed in mid-July 2014.

Drivers are also advised that northbound U.S. 75 from the U.S. 56 junction to Topeka Boulevard will be reduced to one open lane for permanent pavement marking work this week through late Wednesday, June 25, weather permitting. Once this permanent pavement marking work is done, northbound U.S. 75 work will be completed and no more lane closures will be needed.

KDOT also reports that the southbound exit ramp and northbound entrance ramp at 137th Street at Carbondale remain closed for pavement repair work. In addition, the 137th Street bridge over U.S. 75 is restricted to one lane each direction for bridge repair work. Project work is scheduled to be completed on Friday, June 27.
