K-32 over I-70/KTA Bridge Replacement Project Begins in Leavenworth County

On Monday, January 4, a replacement project began on the K-32 Bridge over I-70/Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth County. Project work includes replacement of the existing 310-foot steel girder bridge (with 28-foot wide roadway) with a 325-foot welded plate girder bridge (with 47-foot wide roadway). Work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work. This KDOT bridge replacement construction project oversight will be managed in conjunction with our partner agency, the Kansas Turnpike Authority.

Preliminary preparation work on the project began this past Monday, January 4. Beginning in late February 2016, eastbound and westbound K-32 over the I-70/KTA bridge will be closed to all traffic throughout the project duration. A marked detour will be provided (see detour map below). K-32 traffic will detour via K-7 north to U.S. 24/40 west and south back to K-32 and vice versa.

Traffic will be directed around the project work zone via signage and barricades. Drivers should expect minor delays and must use alternate routes throughout the project duration.

The Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Turnpike Authority urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and “Give ‘Em a Brake!” when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
