Interstate 70 ramp in Wyandotte County to close today

Starting today and weather permitting, the ramp from westbound I-70 to 7th Street in Wyandotte County will be closed so work crews can replace expansion joints on the highway.

A marked detour will be provided, but drivers are urged to continue west on I-70 to 18th Street where they can exit and return east on I-70 to the 7th Street ramp.

The project will be done in two phases, the first of which will require the 7th Street ramp to be closed. The second phase will require westbound I-70 to be narrowed to one lane. The entire project will be done by the end of the month. Most of the work will be done on weekdays with some work on Saturday.
