Here’s what this means for drivers: Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26, weather permitting, U.S. 73/K-7 traffic will be SHIFTED back onto the Leavenworth County Road 14/Santa Fe Trail detour route (see map above), so that crews can complete final construction work on the U.S. 73/K-7 pavement reconstruction project.
Remaining work to be completed on the project includes: replacement of the temporary rock shoulders with concrete pavement shoulders, and pavement replacement tie-in work at one intersection and an approximately 1/4-mile section of highway located at the north end of the project. Once this work is done, the detour route will be deactivated, U.S. 73/K-7 traffic will be shifted back to the existing roadway and overlay work will then begin on Leavenworth County Road 14/Santa Fe Trail.
The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.

Reconstruction of Kansas Avenue Bridge to begin
Wichita, KS – Reconstruction of the Kansas Avenue Bridge in Leavenworth County crossing over the Turnpike/I-70 near mile marker 221 is set to begin soon, weather permitting. Kansas Avenue Bridge will close to all traffic on Monday, March 16.
The Kansas Avenue Bridge (Br. No. 221.542) has deteriorated to the point it needs to be replaced. AM Cohron & Sons is the contractor for the project. Construction on the bridge is expected to be complete in November.
Most bridges crossing over the Turnpike are approximately the same age – 50+ years. During the next several years, KTA will be reconstructing many of these bridges. Future bridge reconstruction schedule will be determined by annual bridge inspections.
