Abilene Exit Back Open On I 70

KSAL StaffNovember 18, 2013

A project that has altered traffic along Interstate 70 near Abilene is nearing completion.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, traffic on I-70 in Dickinson County has been restored to 4-lanes from the Abilene I-70/K-15 Interchange at east to Jeep Road. In addition, the I-70/K-15 Interchange at Abilene is completely open to all traffic.

Efforts continue on completing the improvements to the eastbound lanes. Work continues on the new eastbound bridge at K-43 with plans to open the bridge and divide all I-70 traffic to 4-lanes by the end of this week weather permitting.

Next spring all traffic will be moved onto the improved eastbound lanes while the westbound lanes, ramps and bridges are completed. Plans call for all construction to be completed on or about November 1, 2014 weather permitting. Drivers should be prepared for changes in traffic control throughout construction.

The purpose of the project is to extend the life of the highway and associated bridges while improving ride quality.
