Traffic alert: New K-39 Pecan Creek Bridge opens east of Chanute



New K-39 Pecan Creek Bridge opens east of Chanute

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has opened the new K-39 Pecan Creek Bridge to through traffic. The bridge is approximately nine miles east of Chanute. K-39 from Chanute east to the K-39/U.S.59 junction was closed in early April for the T-WORKS project to demolish the old bridge and construct a new bridge on the existing alignment of K-39. Since the highway has been reopened the signed state route detour is no longer in effect.

B&B Bridge Company, LLC, of St. Paul, Kan., was the prime contractor on the $629,689 bridge replacement project. The new bridge has a widened roadway of 44 feet.

The new bridge remains a work zone. Drivers are reminded to use caution as the contractor completes remaining project tasks. Those with questions may contact KDOT Pittsburg Area Construction Engineer Bob Gudgen, (620) 231-7560, or KDOT Southeast District Public Affairs Manager Priscilla Petersen, (620) 431-1000.
