Carbondale: U.S. 75 project to temporarily close 137th Street bridge and ramp

The Kansas Department of Transportation is advising motorists near Carbondale that the ongoing U.S. Highway 75 resurfacing project will restrict traffic on 137th Street Bridge to one lane and close adjacent exit and entrance ramps for about a week. The work in this area is scheduled April 10-18. Drivers are advised to expect delays due to the lane restrictions and ramp closures.

The 137th Street Bridge over U.S. 75 will be restricted to one 12-foot lane each direction for asphalt pavement approach replacement work. Beginning on Thursday, April 10, the 137th Street to southbound U.S. 75 entrance ramp and the northbound U.S. 75 to 137th Street exit ramp will be closed, 24/7 round the clock, through sometime in the week of April 14-18. When these ramps reopen, then the southbound U.S. 75 to 137th Street exit ramp and the 137th Street to northbound U.S. 75 entrance ramp will then be closed, 24/7 round the clock for pavement work.

No marked detour will be provided, but the suggested detour route is on 137th Street to Old U.S. Highway 75 (Topeka Avenue).

Advance message boards will alert drivers to the ramp closures. Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via signage and cones. There will be a 12-foot lane width restriction, 24/7 round the clock, through the project work zone throughout the project duration.
