Press release

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, the exit ramp from westbound I-470 onto westbound I-70 in Topeka will be closed on Tuesday, March 8, while crews complete core drilling maintenance work.

The closure is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting, but the ramp will open as soon as work is completed.

The closure will be marked by barricades, signs and arrow boards. Drivers will need to find alternative routes, as no marked detour will be posted.
