Members of the general public are invited to a groundbreaking for the Interstate 35-Homestead Lane interchange on Friday.
Construction on the interchange near Edgerton began in March and officials anticipate its completion in fall 2013.
The Kansas Department of Transportation project includes construction of a diverging diamond interchange that will eventually provide access to the BNSF intermodal facility and neighboring logistics park. In addition to the interchange, the $30.6 million project will include paving Homestead Lane from I-35 to 19st Street.
The kick-off event is set for 11:30 a.m. on March 16 at the southwest corner of I-35 and Homestead Lane.
