We appreciate our commercial travelers

Commercial traffic continues to increase on the Kansas Turnpike and KTA has made various improvements over the years to accommodate those who help grow our economy:

  • Increased the vertical clearance of 54 bridges since 2016 with plans to do more.
  • Lengthened several acceleration/deceleration lanes to accommodate commercial vehicles merging into traffic.
  • Increased commercial parking at several service areas and have off-Turnpike parking in Wichita (Exit 50), Topeka (Rice Road), and Kansas City (Turner Diagonal).

We thank our commercial travelers for their work to keep Kansas’ economy moving.
