Beginning Tuesday, September 19, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin an emergency bridge repair in Washington Co. The bridge is located on K-148 over the Little Blue River, about 4.5 miles south of U.S. 36.
A temporary traffic signal will direct one 11-foot lane of traffic through construction at a reduced speed. Drivers should anticipate delays of up to 10 minutes.
Reece Construction Co., of Salina is the prime contractor and has scheduled this $280,085 project to be completed in late October, weather permitting.
