Topeka, Kan. (WIBW) - For wildcat fans heading to the game Saturday, some road closures could affect your commute.

Westbound I-70 from Valencia Road to K-30 will be open to two lanes of traffic for game day only. It will be reduced back to one lane Sunday morning. The pavement repair work project is set to be complete by late November.

I-470 east and westbound left lanes will be closed for pavement repair from 21st street to Wanamaker beginning Saturday morning at 5 a.m. It should reopen at 6 a.m. on Monday. Traffic will be directed through the work zone via signage and cones. The project should be complete by late November.

U.S.-24 from Grantville road to K-237 (Shawnee and Jefferson Counties) will be reduced to one lane each direction for widening work. The project is set to be done in late fall of 2013.

U.S.-24 will also be reduced to one lane over the Bourbanis Creek and Ensign Creek Bridges (located between Silver Lake and west of Rossville in Shawnee County). The project is set to be complete by late November.

Eastbound and westbound K-18 from Ogden to Manhattan (Riley County) is reduced to one lane in each direction for widening work. It's set to be complete in late fall of 2013.

Eastbound and westbound K-18 from one mile east of the city of Wabaunsee to K-99 will be closed to all traffic to replace the two bridges closest to K-99. The full closure will be round the clock. A marked detour is provided. Traffic will detour north on K-99, then west on U.S.-24 and then back on K-18. The project should be done by late fall of 2013.

Northbound and southbound US-75 from Soldier Creek to I-70 will be open to two lanes on game day but you should expect delays. The project should be complete by mid-November.

Northbound US-75 over the railroad bridge located between 77th Street and 85th Street will be reduced to one lane for concrete pavement bridge approach work. The project is set to be complete late this month.
