KANSAS TRAFFIC ALERT: K-10 from E1650 Road to E1900 Road for Monday, May 11-Late December 2015 in Lawrence

Kansas Department of Transportation

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ---- Eastbound and westbound K-10 from E1650 Road to E1900 Road will continue to be reduced to one lane in each direction, with one change: the eastbound K-10 single lane will be shifted side-by-side into the existing westbound K-10 passing lane.

Both eastbound and westbound K-10 traffic will then be traveling side-by-side on the existing westbound K-10 lanes in this area. This new traffic shift will be in place, 24/7 round the clock, beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, May 11 Tuesday, May 12, weather permitting, through late December 2015 in Lawrence (Douglas County).

See aerial map above for lane closure location. The closure start date was rescheduled for tomorrow due to the wet cool weather for today, Monday, May 11.

Traffic will be directed through the work zone via signage, cones and concrete barrier. There will be a 55 mph posted speed limit through the project work zone throughout the project duration.

Noria Road/E1750 Road to the north of K-10 will also continue to be FULLY CLOSED PERMANENTLY to all traffic at the same time. When the interchange is completed later this year, Noria Road traffic will travel over K-10 via a new bridge.

East 1900 Road and County Road 442 will remain open for the traveling public. There will be no marked detour, but traffic can access Noria Road from E Hills Road to the west or E1900 Road to the east.

The lane closures are needed so the contractor can construct the new K-10 and 23rd Street interchange which is part of the ongoing K-10 South Lawrence Trafficway Project (East Leg). See aerial map below. The K-10 lane closures will be in place through late December 2015, weather permitting.
