TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Just in time for Black Friday, two stretches of road closed for months, have reopened.

Wanamaker from SW 29th to 37th streets opened to all through traffic Wednesday.

The outside lanes will still be closed so crews can finish dirt work in the right-of-way.

The $6.2 million project was funded by the Federal Fund Exchange Program through the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The stretch has been closed since early March.

Also saying goodbye to the barricades, SE 37th street from Kansas to Adams.

The stretch reopened to through traffic Wednesday afternoon.

It's been closed since mid-July for a complete asphalt replacement. Final striping will be applied next week.

The project was paid for using city-wide half-cent sales tax funds.

Another road project wrapped up in North Topeka. North Kansas Avenue from Hwy. 24 to Menninger Road. It was closed for 10 days for repairs and resurfacing. Menninger Road between Topeka Blvd. and Kansas Ave. will close next week for resurfacing.

Both of those projects also are funded with the city-wide half cent sales tax.
