TOPEKA -- Motorists will find work on SW 21st Street from Wanamaker to I-470 and SE 29th Street from California to the Kansas Turnpike Authority Bridge to be substantially complete, the first of six city half-cent sales tax projects slated to be completed this year.
The roads are fully open to traffic, yet will undergo some final touches in the next couple of weeks.
Final manhole and valve adjustment work is scheduled in the next 10 days for 21st Street that will divert traffic to one lane in each direction for a couple of days. There will be minor lane diversions, but through traffic will be allowed. Motorists will be notified of any traffic adjustments.
There will be some final clean up work done on SE 29th Street and traffic will only be affected for a few hours. Additional road work, mainly pothole or pavement repairs, from the west edge of current project to the intersection of 29th & California will be completed soon. That work is not part of the half-cent sales tax project but will complete the repairs and improvements in that area.
Other half-cent sales tax funded projects underway include:
NW Gordon from NW Buchanan to NE Quincy
E 6th Street from SE Branner Trafficway to SE Swygart
SE Branner Trafficway and SE Adams from SE 10th Street to SE 29th
SW 10th Street from SW Gage to SE Republican (just East of California) will begin Monday, July 19th.
Completion dates vary. For more information, contact 785-368-3842.
