KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- On Tuesday evening, May 27, a pavement repair project will begin for eastbound and westbound I-70 from 110th Street to I-435 in Wyandotte County. This also includes work on the 110th Street interchange ramps.

Project work includes partial depth patching, a three-inch structural overlay on eastbound I-70 only followed by a novachip overlay and all new pavement markings on both eastbound and westbound I-70.

Work will take place daily overnight between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening, May 27, eastbound I-70 west of I-435 to 110th Street will be reduced to one 12-foot lane through the project work zone for pavement repair work.

There will be a posted speed limit of 60 mph through the project work zone during working hours only. 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.
