NEWS RELEASE FROM THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

U.S. 169 south of Cherryvale to close next week for rail crossing replacement

Beginning Monday, May 19 and continuing through Friday, May 23, weather permitting, the South Kansas & Oklahoma (SKOL) Railroad plans to replace its crossing on U.S.169 just south of Cherryvale.

U.S.169 will be closed to all traffic at the SKOL crossing. Traffic will follow a signed detour through Cherryvale on old 169, using the south and north exits from U.S.169 into town. The detour has a driving lane width restriction of 10 feet and a vertical clearance restriction of 14 feet. Semi tractor-trailers and other vehicles carrying large loads should use alternate routes during the closure. Access to U.S.169 will remain open to local traffic between the two exits.

Persons with questions may contact KDOT Area Superintendent Marcus Leck at the Independence office, (620) 331-3760, or Priscilla Petersen, 1-877-550-5368.
