Phase two of the bridge replacement project over Wildcat Creek on K-18 is expected to get underway Tuesday, weather permitting.
The Kansas Department of Transportation says work will occur from west of Richards Drive to east of Poliska Lane and is expected to be completed in late 2021. The three phase project includes replacement of two bridges with a single bridge for all lanes. Phase three is expected toward the end of this year.
During construction, east and westbound traffic on K-18 will be reduced to one-lane in both directions. Rosencutter Road will be closed at the K-18 intersection.

The detour (see map below) from K-18 to Rosencutter Road uses Seth Child Road, Allison Avenue, Stagg Hill Road and Sky-Vue Lane.  Richards Drive will remain open in both directions on K-18. Poliska Lane will remain open, however, only right-in and right-out turns will be allowed. Same for the entrance across from Poliska Lane.

Linear Trail under the Wildcat Creek bridges will be closed to pedestrian traffic. The detour for pedestrians coming from the north, is to stay on Richards Drive to the K-18 intersection, then cross K-18 and continue south on Rosencutter Road, then cross again at Pecan Circle.

Ebert Construction Co. Inc, of Wamego is the contractor on the $8.9 million project.
