K-32 Turner Bridge

For the third time, K-32 crosses the Kansas River during its almost 60 mile journey through Kansas City, and Topeka. The K-32 Turner Bridge was first opened in 1955 as a two lane steel through-truss bridge. In 2001, the bridge was torn down, due to its major superstructure problems, and with the growing area, could no longer handle the traffic flow as a two lane. By late 2002, the through-truss was gone, and a new five lane girder was in place. The bridge now carries two lanes of eastbound traffic, and three lanes westbound.

The Turner Bridge marks the beginning of the Turner Diagonal.
