Work at the K-32/Turner Diagonal Freeway/Kaw Drive interchange continues, weather permitting, in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) multi-phase project began in October 2022 and includes the replacement of the eastbound and westbound K-32/Turner Diagonal Freeway bridges over Kaw Drive and the Union Pacific Railroad lines.

The first two phases of this project are complete. Phase 3 has begun and the project is expected to be complete by December 2024.

Impacts to traffic are as follows:

  • Phase 3 (March – December 2024): various ramp closures; single lane K-32/Turner Diagonal Freeway traffic will cross over to travel head-to-head; eastbound Kaw Drive closure during bridge demolition.

Work will occur daily, Monday through Friday, from 7 AM to 3:30 PM. Message boards are in place, alerting motorists to closures and directing traffic toward advised detours.

Detours will be marked and include the following:

  • Eastbound K-32 ramp to continue on eastbound K-32 (purple on map): Traffic will be directed east on Kaw Drive to 57th Street and travel north to eastbound I-70, then take the exit to enter southbound I-635.
  • Southbound Turner Diagonal Freeway to Eastbound Kaw Drive ramp (blue on map): Traffic will be directed east on K-32 and take the exit to enter northbound I-635, take the exit to enter westbound I-70, then exit at 57th Street and travel south to eastbound Kaw Drive.
  • Westbound K-32 ramp to continue on westbound K-32 (orange on map): Traffic will be directed via northbound I-635 to take the exit and enter westbound I-70, then exit at 57th Street and travel south to Kaw Drive and then enter westbound K-32.
  • Westbound Kaw Drive to eastbound K-32 ramp (green on map): Traffic will be directed west to travel northbound on 57th Street and enter eastbound I-70, then enter southbound I-635 and take the exit for eastbound K-32. Traffic will be controlled using lane closures, barricades, message boards, signage, and cones.

Miles Excavating, of Basehor, is the contractor for the $22.7 million project, which is scheduled to be completed in December 2024.
