KDOT is beginning work on a project to create a diverging diamond interchange at Sixth Street (U.S. Highway 40) and Kansas Highway 10. Work is expected to be complete by the end of 2024.
Participants in a virtual hearing about plans to widen the South Lawrence Trafficway Tuesday night expressed concerns about safety, noise and other issues with the proposed expansion of the western leg of the highway.
State and federal officials are recommending that the west leg of the South Lawrence Trafficway be expanded from two to four lanes, with an expanded intersection at Interstate 70 and modifications and upgrades at existing interchanges, including the one at 27th and Wakarusa.
