I-70 Bridge Repair Starting in Russell County

Road Work AheadStarting the week of July 8, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin work on a bridge repair project on Interstate 70 in Russell County.

Crews will be patching and overlaying both the eastbound and westbound bridges carrying I-70 over the Union Pacific Railroad near Dorrance, or approximately 14 miles east of the I-70 and US Highway 281 junction.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with a posted reduced speed through the construction zone. Minor delays not exceeding five minutes should be expected.

KDOT expects work to be completed in early December, weather permitting.
