U.S. 75 northbound passing lane to close

Kansas Department of Transportation is advising that continuing work on the U.S. 75 resurfacing project will close the northbound passing lane on U.S. Highway 75 in Osage and Shawnee counties Tuesday.

The project will close the northbound U.S. 75 left lane from the U.S. Highway 56 junction in Osage County to Topeka Boulevard in Shawnee County for milling work at the bridge approaches and for the final application of an asphalt overlay on the mainline lane, beginning after morning rush hour on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

Once work on the left lane is completed, traffic will then be shifted to the resurfaced left lane and the right lane (driving lane) will then be closed for the same work. This portion of the project work is scheduled to be completed in early June 2014, weather permitting.

Drivers are advised that crews will be completing resurfacing work in the passing lanes for both northbound and southbound U.S. 75 from the U.S. 56 junction to Topeka Boulevard during this project. The southbound left lane of U.S. 75 remains closed for ongoing work.

Project work includes the milling of 1-inch of existing pavement for both southbound lanes followed by a new2-inch asphalt overlay, along with bridge approach pavement replacement work.

Drivers should expect delays throughout the project duration. Updated traffic information for this resurfacing project can be viewed at: www.ksdot.org/topekametro/laneclose.asp.  The project is KDOT Project No. 75-89 KA-2185-01 and No. 75-70 KA-2184-01.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
