One ramp to open, another to close

A release from the Kansas Department of Transportation announced that the I-135 ramp to eastbound U.S. 50 on the north side of Newton should be re-opened Monday, June 6.

After that ramp reopens, the northbound I-135 ramp to First/Broadway will close until 7 p.m. Friday, June 10.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation:

The closures are part of a continuing ramp-pavement patching project on U.S. 50/I-135 interchanges on the south and north sides of Newton. The project also involves patching on I-135 ramps at First Street and Broadway in Newton.

The project is expected to end around late July. Only one ramp will be closed at a time. A single lane closure may be needed on sections of I-135 and U.S. 50. Motorists will be directed to drive at a reduced speed. KDOT will continue to provide updates on when each ramp will close as the project progresses. Vogts-Parga Construction, of Newton, is the primary contractor for the $1,179,492 project.
