Ribbon cut for new Turner Diagonal interchange
28 Oct 2020
A hybrid ribbon-cutting with Gov. Laura Kelly was held Wednesday morning at the new Turner Diagonal I-70 interchange in Kansas City, Kansas.
The new diverging diamond interchange was funded through a $13 million federal grant, which is 46 percent of the project costs, according to a spokesman. The rest of the project costs were funded by the Unified Government, Kansas Department of Transportation and NorthPoint Development.
The new interchange will open 300 acres of land for private development in Kansas City, Kansas, generating more than 2,500 jobs in the area, Gov. Kelly said at the ribbon-cutting.
