Three miles of I-70 in Sherman Co. closed due to flooding


KDOT is closing the eastbound lanes of I-70 from Exit 9 to Exit 12, due to the recent heavy rains.

I-70 traffic is currently being diverted to Old U.S. 24 Highway at Exit 9, and will be allowed to re-enter the interstate at Exit 12 (going east). The westbound lanes have not been affected by this closure.

Heavy rains have compromised a drainage pipe under the roadway, causing the temporary closure.

The closure is currently within a project to reconstruct I-70 from the Colorado/Kansas state line, extending east 12 miles.
