This aerial photo looks east along the Kansas Turnpike at a new interchange being built at Leavenworth County Road 1, the road that crosses the turnpike using a new bridge about eight miles east of Lawrence.

Leavenworth County and Tonganoxie officials are eagerly awaiting what type of development they can secure along County Road 1 once the new Kansas Turnpike Authority interchange opens.
The Leavenworth County Commissioners have hit the ball into the city’s court with a draft form of an interlocal agreement that will decide the future of County Road 1.
The new turnpike interchange at Leavenworth County Road 1 not only will be the first new exit on the toll highway since the Lecompton interchange opened a dozen years ago.
Work to build a wider, smoother, safer Leavenworth County Road 1 is still on track for a November 2009 completion, project superintendent Ryan Blosser says.
