The signals for southbound K-7 on westbound State Avenue (US 24-40) have only two phases. In both phases, westbound traffic can go through without stopping. Therefore, the new signal has a single-aspect solid green indication for eastbound traffic. 15 January 2009

Old and new I-70 markers at Milepost 415 in Kansas City. The new markers are to reflect the addition of US 24 and US 40 to the freeway. 12 February 2009

Here's another set of Old and new I-70 markers, this time just east of the Turner Diagonal. US 40 originally joined I-70 at Turner Diagonal, and US 24 joined right before the Lewis and Clark Viaduct. Now, 24-40 joins at Bonner Springs. 12 February 2009

Here, the new westbound I-70/US 24/US 40 reassurance marker is in front of the old one. 12 February 2009

West of I-435, Kansas Turnpike markers are posted along I-70. The new reassurance marker features 24-inch signs for I-70, US 24, and US 40, with space for a new 24-inch Turnpike marker. The old assembly has a 48-inch I-70 marker with a 36-inch KTA shield. 12 February 2009
