UPDATE 9/1/2022: Crews will be working tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 2, to remove barricades & prepare the K-7/I-70 area for normal traffic. Delays can be expected over the morning commute through this work zone. Please allow for extra time in the morning traveling through this area.
Traffic control changes are in effect at the intersection of K-7 and Canaan Center Drive located on the north side of I-70. A vehicle incident happened at approximately 4:00 PM on the afternoon of Thursday, August 25, which completely removed one traffic signal pole and severely damaged another one at this intersection. A plan to construct temporary traffic signals has been put in place and is expected to be fully functional by the end of this week.
The I-70 Westbound Traffic Ramp, 224B, exiting Interstate I-70 is closed. Traffic from K-7 Southbound and Canaan Center Drive headed for I-70 West Bound will also be restricted until a temporary solution is in place.
Those traveling through this intersection are urged to use care and caution with the changes in place. Please keep in mind this is a temporary solution as the new poles are expected to take approximately six months to acquire and install. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this project.
Questions related to this repair and reconstruction project can be directed to Frank Abart at the Bonner Springs Public Works Department during normal business hours at 913-441-1961.
