K-7 and I-70 ramp opens, bridge to be removed
The Kansas Department of Transportation today opened the new ramp from Kansas Highway 7 to eastbound Interstate 70, which is accessed at Speaker Road south of I-70.
KDOT has closed the current ramp that carries K-7 traffic to eastbound I-70. Weather permitting, that ramp’s bridge over I-70 will be removed starting tomorrow. It will take several days to remove the bridge with lane closures and short slowdowns during off peak hours.
