WILSON RESERVOIR, POST ROCK SCENIC BYWAY ACCESSIBLE DURING INTERCHANGE WORK
March 29, 2012
Parks users will have a short detour to access Wilson State Park
WILSON — A short detour will be required to visit the Wilson Reservoir area and the Post Rock Scenic Byway this travel season. Beginning in early April and ending in the fall, the I-70/K-232 interchange (Exit 206, Wilson/Lucas) will undergo reconstruction, but K-232 will still be accessible. K-232 leads to Wilson Reservoir, Wilson State Park and Wildlife Area, the Post Rock Scenic Byway, and the cities of Lucas and Wilson.
Between early April and early June, westbound I-70 travelers heading to K-232 will be detoured about seven miles farther west to Exit 199 (Dorrance), where they can exit, cross I-70, and enter eastbound I-70 to the K-232 exit. During this time, eastbound I-70 travelers can exit at K-232 without a detour.
Between early June and sometime this fall, eastbound I-70 travelers heading to use K-232 will be detoured about 10 miles farther east to Exit 216 (Vesper), where they can exit, cross I-70, and enter westbound I-70 to the K-232 exit. During this time, westbound I-70 travelers can exit at K-232 without a detour.
Throughout the project, K-232 travelers intending to go either direction on I-70 will be detoured in the opposite direction on I-70 to Exit 199 or Exit 216, where they can cross I-70 and re-enter I-70 in their intended direction.
