Interstate 135 (abbreviated I-135) is a 95.7 mile-long Interstate Highway in central and south-central Kansas, USA. I-135 runs between the cities of Salina and Wichita. The interstate's northern terminus is at the junction of Interstate 70 and its southern terminus is with Interstate 35 (the Kansas Turnpike).

Until 1976, I-135 was designated as I-35W[1]. It is the longest "spur" (3-digit number, first digit odd) in the Interstate system[2].


Route description

I-135 begins at this exit from the Kansas Turnpike

I-135 begins from the south at Exit 42 on the Kansas Turnpike. (The exit is signed as I-135, I-235, US-81/Wichita/Salina.) Less than a mile from the Kansas Turnpike tollbooth, I-235, a loop around the western side of Wichita, branches off the highway. I-135 continues northward from there, running just east of the Wichita downtown area. It reunites with I-235 at Milepost 11 at the loop's other end.

I-135 leaves Wichita and continues northward to Newton where it turns northwest at around milemarker 33. The freeway continues in this direction for twenty miles (32 km), finally returning to a due north course at McPherson. The route finally comes to an end north of Salina, at its intersection at I-70.

The I-135 roadbed continues northward to the Nebraska border along the same route, designated as US-81, which overlaps I-135 for the interstate's entire length.
