Traffic shifted for bridge replacement
Traffic has been shifted to a one-lane shoofly detour, controlled by traffic signals, for the bridge replacement project over the Pawnee River on K-23 in Finney County. The bridge is 6.5 miles north of the K-156/K-23 junction.
The Kansas DOT urges drivers to be alert, pay attention to all work zone warning signs, slow down when approaching the work zone and be prepared to stop at the signal.
KDOT expects work on this project to be completed by the end of October, depending on weather. L & M Contractors, Inc., of Great Bend, is the primary contractor on this approximately $1.4 million project.
