If you are going to the KSU-North Dakota State football game in Manhattan Friday you may need to find a different route to the stadium.
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.
Those coming from the south wanting to drive to Manhattan using I-70 eastbound to attend college football games at Kansas State University should follow the detour; enter I-70 at the I-70/K-15 Interchange westbound drive three miles exit at Fair Rd 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 to enter Manhattan and access the K-State stadium.
