The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin a twin bridge repair of the northbound and southbound bridges located on K-61 over Blaze Fork Creek in McPherson County on Wednesday, May 27. The bridges are located approximately one-half mile south of the K-61/Comanche road intersection, just south of Groveland.
Traffic will be reduced to one 13-foot lane in each direction through the work zone. Drivers should expect minor delays, not exceeding five minutes.
PCI Roads, LLC of Saint Michael, Minn. is the prime contractor for this $314,000 project. The contractor has scheduled this project to be completed by August, weather permitting.
KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a work zone.
