Pavement repair project to begin today on I-70 in Western Wyandotte

On Wednesday evening, Oct. 17, a pavement repair project will begin for eastbound and westbound I-70 from 118th Street to K-7 in Wyandotte County.

The repair work will occur in the left two lanes in each direction on this stretch of I-70.

Work will take place daily overnight between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m., Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work.

Overnight, both Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 17-18, westbound I-70 only will be reduced to one lane through the project work zone for pavement repair work.

Work will then resume again on Monday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. with eastbound and westbound I-70 reduced to one lane in each direction for the remainder of the project duration during working hours.

There will be a posted speed limit of 65 mph through the project work zone. Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via cones and signage during working hours.

Advance message boards will alert traffic to the lane closures. Drivers should expect minor delays during the overnight work hours.
