U.S. 75 multi-bridge repair project to begin Monday in Osage County

The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to begin a multi-bridge repair project on U.S.  Highway 75 in Osage County, Monday, March 18, conditions permitting. The project includes resurfacing and patching work on the bridges over 325th Street, 333rd Street, 341st Street and Frog Creek.

The structures are located within a four-mile corridor of U.S. 75 between state Highway 276 and the Coffey County line.

Three bridges will be worked on concurrently, beginning with those over 325th, 333rd and 341st streets. The Frog Creek bridge repairs will begin when 341st Street is complete.

Each bridge that is being actively worked on will be reduced to one lane. Temporary traffic signals will direct traffic across the bridge. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place.

Both lanes of U.S. 75 will be open in the areas between the bridges. The 341st Street on- and off- ramps will also remain open. Speed will be reduced to 55 mph through the entire project corridor.

Work will take place during daylight hours Monday through Friday, and Saturdays as needed.

Wildcat Construction Co., of Wichita, Kan., is the prime contractor on the $937,000 project, which is expected to be completed in October.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone.
