KDOT to host open house for upcoming U.S. 75 bridge projects in Osage County

The Kansas Department of Transportation will host an open house to provide information on three projects scheduled over the next four years to improve several bridges along U.S. Highway 75 in Osage County. The public is invited to attend the meeting 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at Marais des Cygnes Valley High School, 508 N.E. Main St., Melvern, Kan.

Attendees will be able to review the upcoming bridge improvements and speak one-on-one with project staff. There will be no formal presentation and attendees can come and go at any time during the meeting. Information presented at the meeting will be available online beginning March 20 at ike.ksdot.gov/us75-bridges-osage-county.

The first project is scheduled for this year and will resurface and patch the U.S. 75 bridges over 333rd Street, 325th Street, 341st Street, and Frog Creek. Temporary traffic signals will direct U.S. 75 traffic through the work zone for the duration of the project.

In 2025, KDOT will redeck the U.S. 75 bridges over the BNSF railroad and the Marais des Cygnes River. This project is expected to last two construction seasons and will require U.S. 75 traffic to be detoured to state Highway 31.

Another project scheduled to start no earlier than 2027 will replace the U.S. 75 bridges over Frog Creek and 341st Street. This project will also require U.S. 75 traffic to be detoured to K-31.
