The I-70 eastbound lanes beginning one mile west of Abilene then east to a point 1.5 miles west of exit 286 (Chapman) are closed for construction. The closure includes the eastbound ramps at Abilene (K-15). The ramp closure shall be in effect until Oct. 15th.
Motorists coming from the south who wish to drive to Manhattan using I-70 eastbound to attend college football games at Kansas State University should follow the marked detour; enter I-70 at the I-70/K-15 Interchange westbound, drive three miles, exit at Fair Road, then reenter I-70 eastbound in head to head traffic on the westbound lanes or select an alternative route.
Due to ongoing construction on K-18 west of Manhattan, drivers may choose to drive east on I-70 to K-177 (Exit 313) to enter Manhattan and access Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
