I-70 to K-7 ramp closed

July 2, 2010

The ramp from eastbound Interstate 70 to Kansas Highway 7 is closed due to damage caused by an oversized semitrailer traveling underneath the bridge.

Kansas Department of Transportation officials say damage was caused to the bridge structure and further inspection will be needed to assess the total damage and repairs needed. The damage occurred Friday afternoon and the ramp will remain closed at least through the holiday weekend, KDOT said.

Eastbound I-70/KTA traffic entering onto K-7 will enter on the left side of the ramp over the ramp bridge. Eastbound I-70/KTA traffic exiting K-7 will be directed to 110th Street to turn around and head back to exit to K-7. Drivers should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes if possible.
