|Construction on I-70 in Gove County was one of the projects approved in April's construction lettings.|
Work on a nine-mile portion of I-70 in Gove County from one mile west of the K-23 spur near Grainfield to four miles east of K-211 is one of the projects included in KDOT’s April construction letting.
The I-70 project will be completed in three phases starting in 2018 with the construction of crossovers, temporary guardrail and other features necessary to carry head-to-head traffic. The eastbound pavement will be reconstructed in 2019, followed by the westbound portion in 2020.
Additional work will include pavement replacement at both the east and westbound rest areas near Grainfield, construction of new barbed wire right-of-way fencing, lighting installation at exits 95 and 99, and reconstruction of the box structure carrying county road 62 under I-70 into two new span bridges.
