Drivers using Interstate 35 in Franklin County will be met by lane closures and work zones for the next few months.

KDOT has started a resurfacing project between mile markers 177 and 192 in Franklin County. Activities include pavement crack filling, concrete patching, a 1-inch reflective crack interlayer and a 3-inch overlay treatment. I-35 traffic will be reduced to one lane in the project area.

KDOT awarded the $12.4 million construction contract to Bettis Asphalt & Construction Inc. of Topeka. Work on the project will be suspended during the winter months and resume in the spring of 2021.
