Rebuilt Stretch Of I-70 Opens In NW Kansas

Associated Press - October 14, 2013 4:31 pm

A three-year project to improve a stretch of Interstate 70 in far northwest Kansas has been completed.

The Kansas Department of Transportation marked the milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday at the Travel Information Center west of Goodland.

Crews rebuilt 12 miles of eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from the Colorado border east into Kansas.

The $48 million project was funded by a T-WORKS, a transportation program approved by the Kansas Legislature in 2010 to create jobs and preserve highway infrastructure.
