The Interstate 70 and Kansas Highway 7 interchange in Bonner Springs will see close to $70 million in improvements, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback announced today.

The project is one of nine road projects in northeast Kansas, estimated at about $1.8 billion, approved under the Kansas Department of Transportation program T-WORKS, passed by the 2010 Kansas Legislature.
