U.S. 75 and K-31/K-268 roundabout now open from all directions

As of 11:30 a.m. Nov. 17, the new roundabout at the junction of U.S. Highway 75 and state highways 31 and 268 is fully open to unrestricted traffic in Osage County.

While the roundabout is fully open to all traffic from all four directions at the U.S. 75 and K-31/K-268 intersection, there is still finishing work to complete within in the project limits. Drivers should expect minimal delays as project work wraps up. There will continue to be a 40 mph posted speed limit through the project work zone throughout the project duration.

Smoky Hill LLC, of Salina, is the primary contractor on this roundabout project, KDOT Project #75-70 KA-0047-01, with a total contract cost of $2.541 million. The project is scheduled to be completed this month.

    Roundabout, stop sign, stop light——————————————————-has little to do with the intersection—————————————it is all about drivers paying attention as they navigate a vehicle. I still see many drivers playing with their cell phones while trying to drive down the road. Cars, like guns, do not kill people !!!

    I think there will be more crashes than there was.

    I for one really like the new roundabout. We no longer have to wait and wait for the Noth/South bound traffic for long periods of time to enter from the K268 when going to Lyndon , Osage City or Topeka. We just have to wait for vehicles already in the roundabout. We are being careful to make sure vehicles are yeilding until everyone is used to it.
