News release from the Kansas Department of Transportation

Beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, the BNSF Railway will close U.S. 400 at the community of Cherokee to make repairs to its railroad crossing.

Eastbound U.S. 400 motorists will follow a signed detour on the following state routes: from U.S. 400 travel south on K-7 to K-103, continue east on K-103 to U.S. 69, and proceed north on U.S. 69 to U.S. 400. Westbound U.S. 400 motorists will follow the same route in the opposite direction.
