JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Transportation begins work Monday on the installation of cable median barriers along K-10.
KDOT says minor delays can be expected during the project, which is expected to last until mid-December.
The cables will be installed one mile each way from the K-10/K-7 interchange in Johnson County and on a a 2.3-mile stretch of K-10 from just west of the Church Street interchange in Eudora toto approximately a half-mile east of the County Route 442 interchange near Lawrence in Douglas County.
Crews will complete installation work in the highway median during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work.
During the project, the shoulders on both sides of the median will be closed. Crews will begin their work in Douglas County and head east into Johnson County.
Crews will also need to temporarily close some lanes of traffic during the project, which will be marked with advance message boards.
“Drivers should expect minor delays during peak hour commutes when there are lane drops scheduled for K-10,” KDOT said in a news release.
