K-31 to close July 25 near Osage City for highway realignment project

The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to close a portion of state Highway 31, beginning Monday, July 25, in Osage County, weather permitting. The closure is just east of Osage City and will span approximately seven miles from South Indian Hills Road to U.S. Highway 75.

The closure is part of the K-31 realignment project, and the highway is expected to be closed until early November. Through traffic can follow a marked detour on U.S. Highway 56 through Burlingame and Scranton. KDOT uses state highways for official detour routes for safety, weight and maintenance concerns.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. For more information about road construction projects across Kansas, see www.kandrive.org or call 511.
