Three Miles of I-70 in Sherman County Closed Due to Flooding

andy lambertSeptember 13, 2013

KDOT is closing the eastbound lanes of I-70 from Exit 9 to Exit 12, due to the recent heavy rains.KDOT-logo

 

I-70 traffic is currently being diverted to Old U.S. 24 Highway at Exit 9, and will be allowed to re-enter the interstate at Exit 12 (going east). The westbound lanes have not been affected by this closure.

 

Heavy rains have compromised a drainage pipe under the roadway, causing the temporary closure.

 

The closure is currently within a project to reconstruct I-70 from the Colorado/Kansas state line, extending east 12 miles.

 

For questions concerning this project, please contact KDOT Area Engineer Eric Oelschlager at (785) 626-3258 or [email protected] in Atwood; or Kristen Brands, KDOT Northwest Kansas Public Affairs Manager, at (785) 877-3315 or [email protected] in Norton.

 

For up to date road closures and road conditions, please call 511 in Kansas (1-866-511-KDOT (5368) outside the state), or check travel information online at: www.kandrive.org or visit http://511mm.ksdot.org.
