Work is scheduled to begin Monday on a stretch of Interstate 70 in Riley and Wabaunsee counties.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says that work includes patching and replacing concrete panels from the Riley/Geary county line to K-30 in Wabaunsee County. Bridges and bridge approaches in the project corridor are not included.

Crews will be working on both directions of I-70 in roughly 4-mile sections, with active work zones reduced to one lane with 12-foot width restrictions and a reduced speed limit of 60 mph. KDOT says on- and off-ramps will remain open to motorists.

Work on the $2.5 million project will take place Monday through Friday during daylight hours, with lane closures remaining in place when crews are not working. The project is expected to be completed by mid-June.
