Wyandotte County Traffic Alert: U.S. 73/K-7 over Piper Creek

Kansas Department of Transportation

Northbound and southbound U.S. 73/K-7 traffic will be shifted and placed side by side, one lane each direction, in the existing northbound U.S. 73/K-7 lanes from Parallel Parkway to Donahoo Road (Wyandotte County) for bridge replacement work beginning around 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, June 5 through late September 2014.

Traffic will be directed via signs, cones and arrow boards through the project work zone. There will be a 55 mph posted speed limit through the project work zone throughout the project duration. Drivers should expect major delays during the daily peak time commutes.

Updated daily traffic information for this project and for the entire Kansas City Metro Area can be viewed online any time at:

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.

The overall bridge replacement project is scheduled to be completed in late September 2014, weather permitting.
