New detour for semi-trucks at Topeka Blvd. and US 24

There’s a new detour for semi-trucks during the construction at Topeka Boulevard and U.S. 24.

Kansas Department of Transportation officials say there have been a number of accidents with semis at the intersection of NW Menninger Road and N. Kansas Avenue.

Because of that, K-DOT is making a new detour for trucks that will utilize Topeka Blvd. to NW 35th Street to Kansas Ave.

General traffic will continue to use the original detour routes.
