I-70 tower lighting replacement project underway in Wyandotte County

Tower replacement

A project is underway to replace the tower light poles located along I-70 from 38th Street to 10th Street in Kanas City, Kan.

Crews will install new tower lights at the I-70 interchanges to replace the existing tower poles which are dated and worn.

Work is taking place during daylight hours, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The majority of the project work will take place beyond the shoulders on the highway right of way along I-70.

There may be occasional lane and shoulder closures between the non-peak times of 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or during the evening hours, Monday-Friday.

Drivers should expect minimal delays throughout the project duration.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to use caution driving through the project work zone.

Fulsom Brothers, Cedar Vale, Kan., is the primary contractor on this $495,000 tower lighting replacement project.

The overall project is scheduled to be completed in late May 2014, weather permitting.
