KDOT to repair K-68 bridge at Ottawa

The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to start a repair project on the state Highway 68 bridge spanning the Marais des Cygnes River at Ottawa. Work is expected to begin Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Project activity includes patching and an overlay on the bridge deck, replacing the expansion joints, and resetting the bearings.

Traffic on the bridge will be reduced to one lane controlled by signals; expect brief delays. A driving lane width restriction of 11 feet, 6 inches will be in effect. KDOT awarded the construction contract of $1.2 million to PCI Roads, Topeka. Weather permitting, the project should be finished by late November.

Check KDOT’s traveler information website, www.Kandrive.org, for more road condition and construction details. For more information about this KDOT project, call Area Engineer Donna Schmit at 785-433-6107 or public affairs manager Priscilla Petersen at 620-902-6433.
