CITY HALL -- The City of Topeka would like to remind those traveling in and around the 29th Street from Urish Road to Wanamaker Road project to obey all traffic signs and not cut through private property.
City Engineering is reporting a high volume of cars cutting through private property, especially the Dillons parking lot on the southwest corner of 29th and Urish. Dillons can be accessed from the west and the south.
Motorists have also attempted to cut through private property on the northwest corner from Urish, which doesn’t have an outlet. Motorists are using the private drives as a public street on the northeast corner as well. Topeka Police and Shawnee County Sheriffs Officers will be ticketing those who use private drives and parking lots as a pass-through.
The roundabout intersection closed this past Wednesday for four months while it is reconstructed. Road construction is expected in the area for the next two years with portions of roadway opening and closing as the project progresses.
The City encourages patrons of businesses in the area to continue to use them.
