Southbound U.S. 75 bridge deck repair, overlay project to continue near Carbondale

A deck repair and overlay project will resume Thursday, April 27, 2017, on the southbound U.S. Highway 75 bridge, located a half mile south of the Carbondale exit, in Osage County. The project began in July 2016, and included removal of two inches of the existing bridge deck surface, patching, concrete overlay, and pavement markings. The project was scheduled for completion in September 2016, but was not completed and was suspended for the winter.

On Thursday, the southbound left lane of U.S. 75 over the bridge will be closed for the repair work. The contractor is expected to complete traffic control work today and place a concrete barrier on Wednesday.

Traffic will be directed through the work zone via signage, cones and a barrier. There will be a 16-foot lane width restriction and a 60 mph posted speed limit through the work zone round the clock throughout the project duration.

King Construction, Hesston, Kan., is the primary contractor on the project with a total contract cost of $172,427.
