As part of the Turner Diagonal Interchange Improvement project, the eastbound I-70 truck staging area will reopen to trucks, while the westbound I-70 truck staging area will close late afternoon Friday, Aug. 14.
Eastbound I-70 truck staging area will reopen to trucks for parking, weather permitting. The area has been repaved and reconfigured to allow for additional trucks and better traffic flow.
In addition, in the early evening of Friday, Aug. 14, the westbound I-70 truck staging area will close to truck traffic and remain closed until early November.
The westbound truck staging area will be repaved and reconfigured. The Kansas Highway Patrol building is also being reconstructed at that location.
