The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has reopened K-7 to traffic from U.S. 160 at Columbus north to K-102. This seven-mile section of K-7 had been closed for reconstruction since the spring of 2017.
The highway opening marks the completion of the 11-mile reconstruction of K-7 from U.S. 160 north to U.S. 400. Reconstruction of the northern four miles was completed in late 2016. The K-7 roadway has been widened to 44 feet, with 12-foot driving lanes and 10-foot shoulders. Project activity included major modifications to the highway alignment, undermine grouting and bridge repairs. Drivers are reminded to use caution and obey the posted speed limits.
