City officials are planning the next phase of construction to widen Kimball Avenue in Manhattan’s North Campus Corridor.
Public Works crews will close Kimball just west of the Denison Ave. intersection to near the Grain Science Center on Feb. 19. Then, after K-State commencement ceremonies in May, the intersection itself will close, according to City Engineer Brian Johnson.
This will result in traffic adjustments along Kimball through the summer. The southern and eastern legs of the intersection will remain open through the remainder of the semester. City Manager Ron Fehr says most traffic will shift to Anderson and Marlatt during construction.
The roundabouts he’s referring to will be constructed along Tuttle Creek Blvd. at the Seth Child and Hwy 13 intersections in 2025.
