The Kansas Department of Transportation is planning yet another project on U.S. 24, this time in northern Riley County.
KDOT says a project will close a portion of the highway in both directions north of Riley for several months. It’s expected to begin Friday.
The closure is located a quarter mile north of Riley at mile marker 297 (Falcon Road) where work will include a box culvert replacement, asphalt surfacing, grading and seeding. While the highway will close to traffic, property owners in the vicinity will continue to have access to their properties at all times.
Barricades will be in place for the entirety of the project. A signed detour will direct motorist to use U.S. 77 and K-82.
Work will take place Monday through Friday, and Saturday as necessary during daylight hours and should be completed by mid-August, weather permitting.
