Dragoon Creek bridge removal project scheduled on Old U.S. 75

DRAGOON CREEK, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin two bridge removal projects on the Old U.S. Highway 75 frontage road in Osage County, Monday, July 10, 2023, weather permitting.

The projects include removing the Dragoon Creek and Pomona Reservoir bridge north of Lake Road 13 and constructing a cul-de-sac on its southern approach. The bridge has been closed for several years.

The Dragoon Creek drainage bridge on 205th Street will also be removed. The 205th Street access road will close to traffic, and a new access road connecting U.S. Highway 75 to Old U.S. 75 will be constructed south of the current location.

Impacts to motorists should be minimal; however, short-term lane closures may occur intermittently on U.S. 75. Flaggers will direct traffic at those times.

Work will take place Monday through Friday, and Saturdays as needed, during daylight hours. Both projects are expected to be completed by October, conditions permitting.

Killough Construction Inc., of Ottawa, Kan., is the contractor on the combined $993,000 projects.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone. To stay aware of highway construction projects across Kansas, see www.kandrive.org or call 511.
