NEWTON – Work will continue next week on the ramp from westbound U.S. 50 to southbound I-135 at Newton.
During the work, from 7 a.m. Monday, June 27, to 7 p.m. Friday, July 1, traffic on the ramp will be narrowed and controlled by flaggers during daytime hours. Motorists should expect
delays of up to 15 minutes. There will be a width restriction of 11 feet.
The work is part of a continuing ramp-pavement patching project on I-135 ramps at First Street and Broadway in Newton and on U.S. 50/I-135 interchanges on the south and north
sides of Newton. The Kansas Department of Transportation 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.
