Beginning Tuesday, September 19th, the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin an emergency bridge repair in Washington County.  The bridge is located on K-148 over the Little Blue River, about 4.5 miles south of US Highway 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.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a highway work zone.  To stay aware of all road construction projects across Kansas, go to kandrive.org or call 5-1-1.
