Beginning Monday, additional turning lanes will be constructed at the Tuttle Creek Boulevard and McCall Road intersection, and at the U.S. Highway 24 and East Poyntz Avenue intersection. Lane reductions will occur throughout the project at both locations, and delays should be expected. The projects will begin Monday and are expected to be completed by August 1st.
The U.S. 24 and Poyntz project is located at the entrance to Manhattan Town Center, and will include construction of new double left turn lanes. The McCall and Tuttle Creek Boulevard project will include adding a second left-turn lane and rebuilding the shoulder to create a right-turn lane.
These projects are being funded by the City of Manhattan, and the Kansas Department of Transportation. Travelers are encouraged to avoid the area and seek alternative routes during construction.
