Kansas Turnpike Top Crash Locations

KSAL StaffJuly 27, 2015

A study shows that the Lawrence area had several of the top accident sites along the Kansas Turnpike.

The 2010 Long-Term Needs Study compiled for the Kansas Turnpike Authority shows that six of the top nine accident spots on the 236-mile turnpike were in the Lawrence area, and two were on the I-70 stretch approaching Kansas City,

The report also says the turnpike’s south Wichita interchange is another top accident location in the turnpike system, coming in at No. 9.

The high accident areas are along the more heavily traveled stretches of the Turnpike, particularly along I-70 between Topeka and Kansas City.

The K-7 interchange at the Bonner Springs exit approaching Kansas City had the most accidents with 43.
