Turner Diagonal

Interchange

the Project

The existing interchange will be reconfigured allowing the release of nearly 50 acres of KTA and KDOT right-of-way and opening up 300 acres of land for economic development and job creation. The proposed improvements will include a diverging diamond interchange that reuses the existing bridges over I-70. The new interchange provides better access to businesses along Turner Diagonal and allows freight traffic to move efficiently through the corridor well past the infrastructure’s 2040 design year. Diverging diamond interchanges are becoming a more common alternative to traditional interchange designs because they improve safety and operations, particularly for left-turn movements and trucks.
