The first gantry advising the East Lawrence Exit on the Kansas Turnpike is posted in front of the Michigan Street overpass, just after the West Lawrence exit. A I-70 was subsequently posted on the right-hand gantry post. The east Lawrence exit is signed as US 40, US 59, and US 24. 17 August 2011

Here is the final exit gantry for the East Lawrence exit on the on the Kansas Turnpike for US 24 US 40 and US 59. Note the ground mounted supplemental guide sign posted right behind the gantry. 17 August 2011

After completion of the bridge replacement/widening project on the Kansas Turnpike in Lawrence, the guide sign showing distances was replaced. The new sign shows the distance to the K-10 interchange, rather than Lecompton proper, and still shows the distance to Denver. 15 December 2011

The traffic signal at North 3rd (US 40/59) and the Kansas Turnpike (I-70) in North Lawrence has received a facelift. The left turn signal has been changed from a five-aspect "doghouse" signal to a flashing yellow arrow. 28 April 2012

The use of the Clearview typeface also extends to exit signs along the I-70 corridor. While I-70 is not tolled in Wyandotte County, this section of the highway is still part of the Kansas Turnpike.
