I-470 to I-70 ramp set to close over the weekend

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- The Kansas Department of Transportation says a busy highway exit ramp will be closed over the weekend.

The exit ramp from I-470 westbound to I-70 westbound in Topeka will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, July 12, to 6 a.m. Monday, July 15.

KDOT says the closure is to make way for bridge repair work and an asphalt overlay on the deck.

Commuters who encounter the closure should follow the detour sign and take I-70 eastbound to the Wannamaker Rd. exit in order to return to westbound I-70.
