New Date For Highway 169 Closure In Allen County, KS

Updated:

The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin a pavement reconstruction project on a seven-mile section of U.S. 169 in Allen County. The work will begin on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018. It will stretch from Minnesota Road south to Delaware Road.

Crews will be replacing the concrete pavement on the mainline and interchange ramps and will also be reestablishing a new subgrade base.

On May 2nd, weather permitting, this section of U.S. 169 will be closed to through traffic. KDOT says this portion will remain closed until the project is finished in the spring of 2019. Crews will have signage for a detour for U.S. 169 southbound traffic: from U.S. 54 at Iola proceed west on U.S. 54 to U.S. 75, travel south on U.S. 75 to K-39, then proceed east on K-39 to U.S. 169 at Chanute. Northbound U.S. 169 traffic should follow the same detour route in the opposite direction.

KDOT awarded the $16 million construction contract to Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., of Columbia, MO.
